PHOENIX, AZ | July 20, 2012
The Nature Conservancy in Arizona will re-open Ramsey Canyon Preserve tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. The preserve was closed this week due to flooding after Monday night’s storm. Over the last four days, Conservancy employees have been making repairs with the help of heavy equipment. Today, preserve volunteers reset two bridges that were tossed aside by flood flows and smoothed out the trail.
Ramsey Canyon is nestled in the Huachuca Mountains next to 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.
