The Lost Dog Wash Trailhead is the third in a series of projects the team has completed for the City of Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve.  The project has been recognized internationally and has served as the model for all subsequent Preserve Access Areas and sustainable arid region design in general.  The project was awarded an ASLA National Honor in 2008 where the awards jurors called it “the most sustainable project we have seen!”
