Founded in 2003, our mission is to preserve and protect the Hassayampa River Preserve and the Hassayampa watershed.  We accomplish this through education, stewardship and community engagement, such as membership in the Wickenburg Outdoor Education Partnership.

We provide nature-based outdoor programs for students and adults. 

We have funded numerous improvements to the preserve including:

  • Picnic tables 
  • Lykes lookout panorama signage


The Preserve is part of Maricopa County Parks and Recreation's Vulture Mountain Recreation Area. maricopacountyparks.net
