About Hart Prairie Preserve

The Nature Conservancy’s Hart Prairie Preserve is a truly unique landscape at the base of the magnificent San Francisco Peaks. At an elevation of 8500’, it boasts the largest known Bebb willow community, a rare wet meadow riparian habitat, Aspen groves, and mixed conifer forest stands with the tallest peak in Arizona as a stunning backdrop. There is also a rich human history, as the 130 year-old homestead at Hart Prairie was the first stop on the Flagstaff to Grand Canyon stagecoach route.

The high diversity of forest and grassland types within the San Francisco Peaks supports over 80 species of native mammals, over 250 plant species, and over 120 species of birds, including many neotropical migrants, old-growth dependent birds, and a wide variety of raptors.
