A Web site developed to help raise awareness of the role that a
wash plays in the Southwestern U. S. natural environment and help to
preserve the unique ecosystem that exist around them.
The purpose of this Web site is to help educate the community and
visitors about the plants and animals found in Corgett Wash.
It drains a large area, flowing west from the Estrella Mountains and
their foothills at the southwest edge of the valley formed by the Salt
and Gila Rivers near Phoenix, Arizona. Without an understanding of the
impact of different kinds of human activity, the wash, as a Sonoran
desert riparian habitat, will quickly deteriorate.

As other washes are documented and
new programs are developed, links to those sites will appear here.
