This goal aims to bring our communities into the process of managing and protecting natural, open spaces in Arizona. To do this, we want to raise awareness about the challenges and opportunities facing the Sonoran Desert, help get people into nature, and empower community members to turn their hopes for open space in Arizona into a reality.
