Member Groups

The Coalition for Sonoran Desert Protection is an alliance of 32 conservation and neighborhood groups, representing nearly 30,000 people, that formed in February 1998. This includes local neighborhood associations such as the Tucson Mountains Association, regional groups like the Sky Island Alliance and Tucson Audubon Society, national organizations such as the Sierra Club and Defenders of Wildlife, and organizations with international reach such as Bat Conservation International.
