The Colorado River crossing at Yuma, Arizona, has a rich history, accented in recent years by irrigation works that have transformed the region into an agricultural oasis. But in the process, riparian areas suffered and the riverfront became blighted. Today, Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area is working to restore the region's wetlands and reconnect the city to its historic downtown riverfront.
Yuma is located just off Interstate 8, halfway between San Diego and Phoenix. Yuma is served by US Airways (Phoenix) and United Airlines (Los Angeles).
