Your gift today will support connected open spaces in the Sonoran Desert! Donate Now

Thank you so much for your donation!

Because of you, the Sonoran Desert is one step closer to being a protected and connected ecosystem for wildlife and people.

Thank you for your generosity and your support of Sonoran Desert wildlife, protected wildlife linkages, healthy habitat, clean water and air, and so much more. You have made a real, positive difference for one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems in the world. 

Interested in volunteering and learning more firsthand about how your donation is having an impact?

We have regular volunteer opportunities, including our citizen science-based Wildlife Camera Project (which includes both field and office options for volunteer work); quarterly highway clean-ups along Oracle Road near Catalina State Park; “mailing” parties where we stuff envelopes, chat, and eat yummy food; and intermittent office work. Please let us know if any of these opportunities interest you!

You will be receiving our monthly e-newsletter, “The Desert Scoop,” regular email action alerts and event announcements, and our bi-annual print newsletter, the Friends of the Desert. You can also keep up with all the latest news by following our Facebook page. 

Sometimes your voice will be critical to accomplishing our goals, especially when it comes to convincing local elected officials that the Sonoran Desert deserves protection. So be on the look out for our action alerts and, if you can, please respond!

Is there an issue about the Sonoran Desert that particularly interests you or you are concerned about?

Please let us know. Often our members are on the front lines and are the first to let us know about upcoming development projects or issues. We always appreciate this information and will do our best to promptly respond and to keep you in the loop as we work on the issue or project.

Thank you again for you donation. We are grateful and humbled by your generosity and will be using your donation wisely and strategically for the most effective Sonoran Desert conservation.

For the desert,

Whelan, Kathleen, Jessica (and Mateo), and Carolyn
