Superstition Area Land Trust

The Superstition Area Land Trust (SALT) is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of the open spaces surrounding the Superstition Mountains. We believe that this unique treasure must be protected for future generations through education, advocacy, land acquisition, and federal and state land conservation.

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.
