Part of the latest newsletter informed usÂ the Tom's ThumbÂ & East End trails in Scottsdale's McDowell Sonoran Preserve are under construction now.
The work is done by hand, but some of the large boulders may require relocation in order to widen theÂ areas.Â
If you have any questions regarding the work, you can contact Scottsdale Project Manager Robin Rodgers at (480) 312-2522.

"From July 1, 2007, to July 1, 2008, Arizonaâ€™s population grew by 2.3 percent, or about 147,000 people, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The year before, Arizona also was the second-fastest growing state, but at a higher rate, 2.8 percent."
