THE CHUCK HUCKELBERRY LOOP
Earmark your gift to the Parklands Foundation for The Loop! Your donations can help fund additional amenities for our 131-mile shared-use path such as benches, shade structures, or additional water stations. Businesses might consider funding construction of connections from their parking lots right to The Loop! We’re also launching a “Loop Buddy” program that will enable us to train volunteers to ride and walk The Loop, offering tips and information on usage, conduct and wayfinding.
MEMORIAL BENCH PROGRAM
Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation (NRPR) partners with Parklands Foundation to give residents and park users the opportunity to purchase and donate a park bench in remembrance of friends and family. For more information go to the Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation website, Memorial Program page.
Whether you're new to the area or long-time resident, looking for an indoor nature activity or an outdoor adventure, joining us solo or in a flock, Pima County's Environmental Education Program has something for everyone! Our Outdoor and Wildlife Programs help participants explore parks and trails while getting to know the local flora and fauna. Our Nature Online Series lets learners connect with the Sonoran Desert virtually from anywhere, while our Community Presentations bring Pima County naturalists to speak at meetings and in-person gatherings. Older youth and adults can learn new outdoor skills – from birding to map-reading – in our Workshops, and our School and Youth Programs make science and nature come alive for classes, clubs and other groups of pre-K through twelfth graders. Pima County is a wild place. Explore it with us! Learn more here!
The Pima County NRPR Trails Program manages over 150-miles of recreational trails and 25 trailheads in Pima County natural resource parks. A key element to the PC NRPR Trails Program is the substantial volunteer program, which is comprised of approximately 100 regular individual volunteers, who assist with trail construction and maintenance activities to support PC NRPR’s regional trail system. PC NRPR trail and trailhead facilities are located throughout eastern Pima County, including the Tucson Mountains, Santa Catalina Mountains, Oro Valley, Marana, Vail and Green Valley. The PC NRPR Trails Program serves to provide unique recreational opportunities for all non-motorized trail-users, such as hikers, trail runners, mountain bikers and equestrians, as well as improving public health and supporting the local economy through outdoor recreation industry dollars.
