Success! Yesterday, Western Rivers Conservancy preserved a crucial stretch of Arizona’s East Verde River and secured a recreational gateway to the Mazatzal Wilderness!
Today is a great day for our rivers, for conservation and for everyone who cherishes our incredible national heritage of public lands.
The Land and Water Conservation Fund has been permanently reauthorized!
This fall, Western Rivers Conservancy launched an effort to conserve a rare unprotected reach of Arizona’s East Verde River. Flowing from headwaters in the forests of the Mogollon Rim, the East Verde courses through nearly 30 miles of backcountry within the Tonto National Forest and Mazatzal Wilderness, where it finally meets the Verde River against a backdrop of sunbaked boulders and saguaro cacti.
