NewslettersSuperstition Area Land Trust

Our Commitment

The mission of the Superstition Area Land Trust is to promote the preservation of the natural Sonoran Desert open spaces surrounding the Superstition Mountains for this and future generations.


The mysterious Superstition Mountains rise above the Sonoran Desert on the eastern edge of the Valley of the Sun in Arizona. Steeped in history and folklore, they lure visitors from around the world to explore the history and romance of the old West, and admire its rug beauty.

In 1993, the Superstition Area Land Trust (S.A.L.T.) was born when a group of residents of the communities and settlements bordering the Superstition Wilderness Area created a nonprofit organization to preserve the riparian areas, native vegetation and wildlife of the vanishing Sonoran Desert.

Most of the land surrounding the Superstitions is owned by the Arizona state land department, whose mandate is to manage the land to fund various public institutions. As urban sprawl creeps eastward from the Phoenix suburbs, pressure to develop more state land increases.

Journey through our beautiful watersheds, observe our vibrant vegetation and wildlife, marvel at our pristine deserts, then join us in our advocacy to preserve this precious heritage.

The Sonoran Desert’s delicate balance is maintained by a diverse mix of native species. We need your help to protect that balance in the watersheds and riparian ways, and to help preserve our diminishing open spaces

SALT continues its work with the State of Arizona and the United States Congress to enable some of the more sensitive areas to be preserved.
