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


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.
