Celebrate Our New Nature Preserve!

Feb 18, 2022

The Conservation Fund (TCF) along with the Town of Oro Valley announced completion of the acquisition of 202 acres of the Vistoso property, making our community dream of a nature preserve a reality.

We hear it time and time again: when it comes to government, the biggest impacts can be made at the local level. As your mayor, I’ve had a front row seat to the positive impact Oro Valley residents have had on this community through their time, energy and generosity. Most recently—just last week, in fact—we saw the culmination of a three-and-a-half-year effort to successfully preserve the former Vistoso Golf Course as a wildlife corridor, open space and future passive recreation area in perpetuity. That collaborative effort is a story worth telling.
