On May 10th, over 200 people came to celebrate the completion of the Oracle Road wildlife crossings! The dedication included a press conference, a talk by our Director, Carolyn Campbell, and a guided walk and tour of the wildlife bridge. Following the wildlife bridge event, attendees made their way to Pusch Ridge Stables for a reception and a guided hike to the large wildlife underpass. We are so happy to have been able to celebrate this success with so many members of the community and those that made this work possible. We look forward to documenting wildlife using the crossings and celebrating connected habitat and a healthier Sonoran Desert for years to come.
Check out all the information below for news stories and photos from the wildlife crossing dedication and videos and photos of wildlife using the crossings.

After seeing a bear walking behind the fence on the highway to Banff, I was so pleased to have the same features on our Oracle speedway.
