Camino Campana Trail and DeCabooter Amphitheater Dedicated at McDowell Sonoran Preserve

Bringing honor to Scottsdale leaders who pioneered this beloved recreational area.

This fall, two dedications took place at the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, honoring a pair of Scottsdale leaders who pioneered the landmark recreational area. With 30,500 acres, it is the largest municipal preserve in North America.

On Oct. 31, Scottsdale Mayor David Ortega and members of City Council, the McDowell Sonoran Preserve Commission and the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy dedicated the one-mile Camino Campana at the Fraesfield Trailhead. The accessible trail honors “Sam” Kathryn Campana, the former Councilwoman and mayor who, for more than 25 years, helped guide Scottsdale forward to create the Preserve. She continues her service as a Preserve steward.

Two weeks later, on Nov. 13, the Art W. DeCabooter Amphitheater was dedicated at the Pima Dynamite Trailhead. DeCabooter, who died on Oct. 8, 2019, was the president of Scottsdale Community College for 30 years and also a strong supporter of the Preserve.
