We are excited to share that our project is a finalist for the Arizona Forward Environmental Excellence Awards! Our project, Elizabeth "Liz" C. Archuleta County Park: Fostering Hope, Heritage, and Community Centered Environmental Education, honors the environmental education and communication work that Elizabeth "Liz" C. Archuleta County Park and Willow Bend Environmental Center are doing. This county park is an important part of the community and provides opportunities for active and passive learning while visitors enjoy the outdoors. Visitors can learn about environmental education topics through programming provided by Willow Bend Environmental Center and then explore the park's outdoor classrooms, gardens, and watchable wildlife platform. The winners will be announced at the Arizona Forward Gala on April 29th.

- The Fort Tuthill Bike Park does not allow sledding, due to safety concerns and damage to the biking features. We support safe and fun snow play in Coconino County. For information on winter recreation and a map of recreation opportunities, please see our Winter Recreation page.
- The pond at Elizabeth “Liz” C. Archuleta County Park is complete. This pond is made possible due to the generous funding from the Arizona Game and Fish Heritage Grant. Visit Elizabeth "Liz" C. Archuleta County Park to see the pond and other amenities.
Winter Parking: In November 2022, the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved an amendment to the Winter Parking Ordinance. The amendment further enhances the Sheriff’s office’s ability to enforce violations. The amendment goes into effect December 15, 2022. It enhances the November 2017 Winter Parking Ordinance 2017-11. This ordinance prohibits parking at all times along County maintained rights-of-way between November 1 and April 1 and allows for the civil enforcement of parking restrictions either by citation (not less than $200 fine) or towing. This ordinance is intended to help reduce the detrimental effects of snow play, which create safety hazards for visitors and adversely impact area residents’ quality of life through illegal parking, littering and trespassing on private property.
