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
Jan 26, 2021
Join our first speaker series of 2021 with Michael Chamberland from the Maricopa Cooperative Extension Office as we explore this noxious weed. Participate to get updates on our current understanding of stinknet, including fire effects during 2020 and potential treatment options for residents!
January 1 - 31, 2021
Find and map as many cheeseweed plants (Malva Parviflora) as possible. An ambiguous leafy green plant, cheeseweed can be found all over metro Phoenix. Growing in January help find this naturalized “weed” with both uses and drawbacks.
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.
