Coconino County Parks and Recreation (CCPR) received the Natural Resource Award from Arizona Parks and Recreation Association for Rogers Lake Recreation improvements.
Since 2011, CCPR has been incorporating recreation improvements at Rogers Lake County Natural Area while celebrating sustainability with residents and visitors.
Enhancements to the natural area were intended to engage the visitors and designed sustainably by using repurposed materials. The award acknowledges the hard work, ingenuity and dedication that CCPR staff has made.
“I’m proud of our Parks and Recreation team for the work that they do and congratulate them on their award and recognition from the Arizona Parks and Recreation Association,” said Chairwoman of the Board of Supervisors, Liz Archuleta. “Striving for a healthy, close-knit community, while taking steps to improve the environment is something that we take great pride in at Coconino County.”
The awarded sustainable features completed by CCPR staff in the natural area in 2016 and 2017 include:
•A watchable wildlife viewing platform that overlooks the lake.
•A 6-mile trail system and two trailheads with parking at the county natural area.
Other environmentally friendly improvements CCPR has made to the natural area include:
•A ramada structure built from recycled lumber that diverts rainwater to a water feeder for birds, bats and small mammals.
•Two trailheads and parking lots made from milled asphalt that came from a Highway 89A alignment project near Fort Tuthill County Park.
•Trail surface made from repurposed, engineered crushed stone originating from a renovation project from Flagstaff Pulliam Airport.
