Love & Support
Build champions and the constituency of support and action for Sonoran Desert conservation by raising awareness and connecting people with nature.
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.

Invasive species are one of the biggest threats to the health of local habitats by crowding out native species, decreasing biodiversity and increasing wildfire risk. Desert Defenders is a citizen science program focused on finding, mapping and removing invasive species at local parks and preserves using a map-based smartphone app. Join the new Desert Defenders program to help us find and remove these plants!
