To create and support cutting-edge, project-based sustainability solutions in Arizona

Vision and Mission - Conservation Priority

Objectives - Adopt-a-Park: North Mountain Project
AZSA adopted North Mountain Preserve in North Phoenix three years ago as part of AZSA’s Adopt-a-Park Program. We have built and maintained great relationships with the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation department that works in that area of the city. By working to maintain a clean and beautiful North Mountain Preserve in Phoenix we are promoting sustainable communities and providing valuable outdoor spaces for native plants and animals and supporting the well-being of those living within the community.

      • Take pictures or make sure we have a designated person in charge of photos
