PMPC fights the battles needed to keep these natural places intact so you can experience all of your favorite outdoor recreational activities in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve
PMPC volunteers are advocates for ALL the mountain preserves in the City of Phoenix
In the Beginning....
Efforts by individuals to save the mountains within the city limits of Phoenix began in the early 1960s but coalesced into a group effort when the Phoenix Mountains Preservation Council was founded in August 1970.
Since the mountains are mute, a nucleus of determined PMPC members continues to speak out for them. PMPC also publishes a newsletter, “The Phoenix Mountains Lookout” and sponsors events to acquaint political leaders and citizens alike with their mountain treasures.
The road has been long, bumpy and often lonely. but the core group has stayed together, remained active and continues to meet each new challenge to the best of its ability.
