West Desert Trails
About the Trails
The West Desert Trails are unmaintained trails located on approximately 1,830 acres of open space adjacent to the Sierrita Mine in Green Valley, Arizona. This property was purchased by Freeport-McMoRan Sierrita Inc. in 2012. In 2014, Sierrita completed the installation of groundwater extraction wells and related infrastructure in accordance with the sulfate mitigation effort.
Many species of birds suffer from loss of habitat, especially in Arizona’s expanding urban centers. Volunteers are needed to monitor nest boxes – either by opening to check on the nest or peeking through the sides and then providing notes on activity.
Schedules available from May to September
