The Nature Conservancy in Arizona has temporarily closed the Ramsey Canyon Preserve because of the Monument Fire burning in the Coronado National Forest. Ramsey Canyon is nestled in the Huachuca Mountains on the Coronado National Forest near Sierra Vista.
Ramsey Canyon is known for its scenic beauty, high canyon walls and cool environment. Visitors from Arizona and around the world enjoy hiking, bird and wildlife watching at the preserve. It’s also a popular spot for hummingbirds.
Ramsey Canyon Preserve will re-open when the fire is no longer burning in the Huachuca Mountains.
