The Anza Trail Coalition of Arizona is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) dedicated to the restoration and maintenance, protection and interpretation of the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail. The membership-driven organization was founded August 1992 in Santa Cruz County, Arizona. ATCA works to re-establishing a contiguous segment of the Anza Trail through Arizona on land and by car. The ATCA is a 100% volunteer organization. That means we have no paid employees so 99% of our funding goes directly to trail acquisition, maintenance, and public outreach such as Anza Days in October. Partnering with county businesses, local land owners, the National Park Service, BLM, AZ State Parks and other agencies, members and volunteers of the ATCA provide interpretive information at events, renovate trail sections, re-establish and clear trail segments, install signage as well as host events along the National Historic Trail.
