Catalina State Park protects more than 5,000 acres north of Tucson but it might have been a housing development with a golf course and other amenities had it not been for a cooperative effort to save the land in the 1970s and 80s. Today, it is one of the most visited destinations in Arizona's State Parks and Trails system.
