Sustain & Restore
Engage best practices in land management and restoration to sustain native biodiversity, positive recreational experiences and benefits connected with the Sonoran Desert.
This goal includes a variety of initiatives, including research about the impact of using desert parks, research about effective invasive species control and removal and working to return native plants to the landscape.
Science in the Desert
Monarch butterfly populations have declined as much as 90% over the last two decades. Great Milkweed Grow Out is a Desert Botanical Garden initiative that supports monarch conservation by creating habitat at schools and community centers, propagating native milkweeds, and conducting innovative research on monarchs and milkweed.
