Nestled in the Chiricahua Mountains of Southeastern Arizona, 150 miles east of Tucson and 50 miles  north of Douglas, is Cave Creek Canyon, a hidden gem with spectacular cliffs, flowing streams and an abundance of wildlife.

Endowed with magnificent scenery and unparalleled biodiversity, Cave Creek Canyon is truly a special place.  Residents and visitors who want to help protect the area now have a chance to do so by joining, volunteering, or contributing to the Friends of Cave Creek Canyon.

As individuals and families, we work closely with Coronado National Forest to support its work and mission in Southeast Arizona.  We seek to provide educational opportunities for area residents, visitors, school groups, scientific researchers and others who cherish the special qualities of our region.

Researchers and scientists claim that Cave Creek Canyon has the richest diversity of wildlife in the U.S.  Birding is fine here year-round and especially rewarding in the summer.  Many interesting birds from south of the border can be found here in the Chiricahua Mountains.
