Cienega Creek flows down from Davidson Canyon as one of the only permanent streams here in the desert southwest. Home to birds and wildlife, it has been deemed an "Outstanding Water of Arizona." If either the Rosemont Mine or the Cal-Portland Cement and SEEL mines go in all their water run off will flow downstream, affecting this pristine natural area. Birds have used it as a home and a migratory stop off for ages. In a very short time it could be destroyed.
