Join to celebrate the official transfer of the Vistoso Trails Nature Preserve from Mike Ford and The Conservation Fund (TCF), to the Town of Oro Valley.

Mayor Winfield will mark the transition with a ribbon cutting on Friday at 8:30 a.m. Directions to the ceremony will be posted near the parking lot by the former club house on Vistoso Highlands Dr.

The transfer of the Nature Preserve from TCF to the Town of Oro Valley is possible because you and others in our community raised more than $1.8 million for TCF to purchase the property. Mayor Winfield, Vice Mayor Melanie Barrett, Town Council members, and Town Manager and Town Attorney, played a key role in negotiating the preservation of the Vistoso property as a nature preserve.
