    Description

    [First paragraph] In 1999-2000, stakeholders involved with efforts to create Las Cienegas National Conservation Area identified lands north of the designated National Conservation Area and Acquisition Planning District boundaries as important to protect as well. These lands, formerly known as the Missing Link and now known as the Cienega Corridor, represent over 50,000 acres of important wildlife habitat and corridors, open space, cultural and economic resources, and watershed for recharge of Tucson’s groundwater. The area is under imminent threat of development, however, because it lies just a few miles east of the City of Tucson.
