We work with the Coronado National Forest, AZ Game and Fish, Pima County, Saguaro National Park and other agencies and stakeholders to advance sound forest area planning, conservation and clean up, and road and trail management in the Pass.  Redington Pass is a high mountain pass located within the Coronado National Forest between the Santa Catalina Mountains and the Rincons in northeast Pima County just east of Tucson, AZ.
