Planning Your Visit
Pumphouse Greenway County Natural AreaTo visit Pumphouse County Natural Area, travel I-17 to exit 333 (Kachina Village - Mountainaire) five miles south of Flagstaff, and turn west. Raymond County Park is on the right. The natural area meanders through the Village, extending to Harrenburg Wash near Kachina Village Utility on Jadito Trail.

Visitors are encouraged to participate in protecting wildlife and their habitat by leashing dogs and enjoying the wetland from dry ground. Recent improvements at the adjacent Raymond County Park include newly-installed wildlife viewing platforms above the wet meadow to help visitors enjoy and protect Pumphouse County Natural Area at the same time.

The wet meadow that is Pumphouse Greenway's signature view shed was purchased with funds from the County Parks and Open Space Program. The greenway idea originated with a community planning committee and was developed into a conceptual plan by a Northern Arizona University Parks and Recreation Management class in 2001. In 2007, an NAU class in Ecological Restoration Applications researched and wrote an Assessment of the Kachina Village Wetlands Conservation Area.

Your Choices Affect Pumphouse Natural Area

Community involvement and education are critical to sustaining good habitat in the wetland for decades to come. Here’s what you can do to help:
  • Walk on the brown, stay out of the green.
    Wetlands are fragile habitats and their wild inhabitants are easily disturbed by unexpected human activities. Enjoy the wetland from a sloped area above it. Avoid walking in the wetland unless you are part of a tour guided by park staff.
  • Leave no trace when you walk or ride a bike or horse along the wetland’s trails.
    Pack out fruit peels, power bar wrappers, water bottles, and pet feces.
  • Put your dog visitor on a leash.
    Other park visitors appreciate your effort to protect them, their children, and their dogs. Moreover, Kachina residents will appreciate your courtesy toward the wildlife they are so fond of.
