The Santa Cruz Valley National Heritage Area (SCVNHA) honors and celebrates the natural environment, cultural traditions, historic places, and working landscapes of the watershed of the Santa Cruz River in Pima and Santa Cruz counties in southern Arizona. As a non-regulatory designation made by Congress, SCVNHA takes a grassroots, community-focused approach to support historic preservation, natural resource conservation, recreation, heritage tourism, and educational projects.
