Horseback Riding

2017 Accomplishments:

  • Maintained the 15-mile Sophie’s Flat trail system in partnership with Bureau of Land

             Management. We recently entered into a 5-year Cooperative Agreement with BLM to
             improve and upgrade the trailhead, replace trail signage, and eventually extend the trails by 20 miles

  • In partnership with area schools and organizations, increased the number of outdoor educational programs for children and adults that now include:

                    - Hug A Tree and Survive - basic safety for students should they become lost

                    - Geocaching

                    - Desert Survival

                    - Leave No Trace - principles for enjoying the desert responsibly

                    - Citizen Science

                    - Star Gazing

                    - Interpretive Hikes

  • Worked with The Nature Conservancy to get an Educational Use Agreement to use 33

                acres of land near the Hassayampa Elementary School for STEM based nature studies
