After several years spent stuck in the rough, an abandoned Oro Valley golf course could soon find new life as a nature preserve.
First, though, a group of community conservationists must raise $1.8 million in two months to buy the former Golf Club at Vistoso.
“It’s heavy lifting, but we’re focused on that like a laser beam,” said Craig MacKay, one of the founding members of Preserve Vistoso.
The neighborhood nonprofit has partnered with a national organization called The Conservation Fund to purchase the property and turn it into a desert park and community trail.
