How will proposed subdivision development impact riparian habitat and popular trails in the Granite Dells?

Find out when naturalist Walt Anderson presents “Granite Dells: A Threatened Community Resource” at the Saturday, Feb. 10 meeting of the Citizens Water Advocacy Group from 10 a.m. to noon at the Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation building, 882 Sunset Avenue, Prescott. Everyone is welcome. 

Anderson will describe the wildlife and open space values of the riparian habitat along Granite Creek below the Watson Lake Dam and of the Peavine and Iron King Trails, which go through the heart of the Granite Dells. These trails and Granite Creek are threatened by proposed subdivision development and diversion of water from the creek’s stream bed.
