Join us for an exclusive weekend program at this historic mountain property located at the base of the magnificent San Francisco Peaks north of Flagstaff. This program will be hosted at The Nature Conservancy’s Hart Prairie Preserve, which is situated at 8,500 feet elevation and is surrounded by thousands of acres of cool forests and meadows.

This unique natural environment is home to more than 80 species of mammals, including Arizona’s largest population of elk and second largest population of mule deer, plus Abert’s squirrel, badger, black bear, porcupine, weasel and many species of bats.

Over 120 species of birds have been recorded here, including many neo-tropical migrants, old-growth development species, and many raptors. Participants need to be in good physical condition, able to hike independently over relatively high elevation terrain with short, steep grades and loose, rocky, uneven footing for a distance of several miles.

Only five rooms available, accommodations for this program may vary and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Three-day trip includes:

  • Lodging for two nights
  • Catered meals prepared and served at the historic log cabin lodge (Friday dinner / Saturday breakfast, lunch, and dinner / Sunday breakfast and lunch)
  • Guided tours and handouts   

Not included:

  • Transportation to and from Hart Prairie Preserve
  • Personal expenses
