Central Arizona Conservation Alliance
We support organizations and the people of Arizona to protect and care for natural, open spaces that serve our communities and protect the habitat of the Sonoran Desert in Central Arizona.
Why Are Open Spaces Important?
Maricopa County open spaces are at the heart of what makes the Valley special, drawing visitors to our small businesses, providing locals and tourists with places to explore and enjoy, while elevating the beauty of the Sonoran Desert. As the region grows, we are actively finding ways for these spaces to expand to serve more people and maintain healthy desert habitats for future generations.
Our Campaign Goals
Sep 25, 2021
CAZCA and the Metro Phoenix EcoFlora are celebrating National Public Lands Day! Take part in a casual and fun hike at South Mountain with us as we enjoy and connect with nature. Join us to learn more about the public lands and wilderness areas we have in Arizona.
Sep 29, 2021
Part of the Desert Defenders initiative, join Friends of the Tonto as they work with Tonto NF and neighboring communities to identify, map and remove non-native plants. In this training session you'll learn how to use the free Esri Field Maps app to collect data on non-native plants.
Whether you love to hike or just want to smell the desert roses, CAZCA has a way for you to get involved in the preservation of the Sonoran Desert.
