A Look Through Time: From Creating a Riparian Reserve with Treated Effluent to Exploring Opportunities for Open Space

Scott Anderson, Natural Resource Manager, Coconino County

Conservation and public education go hand in hand. Please join us tonight, Thursday, March 3rd, for a presentation by Scott Anderson, Natural Resource Manager for Coconino County. In an effort to support conservation and education interests, Scott founded a Riparian Institute in the Town of Gilbert and created a 308 acre riparian preserve using treated effluent. Today Scott’s conservation efforts focus on acquisition and management of Natural Areas with the goal of enhancing the Open Space and Parks system for Coconino County.

We look forward to seeing you tonight, Thursday March 3rd at 6:00PM at the Montoya Community Center for a presentation by Scott Anderson. Enjoy the sunshine!

Our website got a makeover!

Dear friends and family,

During Summer 2015 we applied for and received a Community Initiatives Grant with the goal of moving our website to a WordPress platform in order to give Board members better access to updating and posting on the website. After a few months, and with the help of a local web designer (Jesse Waitz), we launched our new site in early February. We hope you enjoy it! Please be patience as we continue to update and edit the site during the next few months, and feel free to contact us at with any questions.
