We bring the Sonoran Desert to you!
Welcome to Conservancy Kids!
Surviving in the Desert
Luke Spots Adaptations
Humans in the Desert
Sometimes it seems like humans are very separate from nature. But, like we've talked about in previous newsletters, we are actually a part of the ecosystem! Humans shape the environment and it's our job to balance our needs with the needs of nature. The Scottsdale McDowell Sonoran Preserve is managed through a unique partnership between the City of Scottsdale and the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy. The City of Scottsdale owns and operates the Preserve and the Conservancy supports the City in the important work of managing and caring for the Preserve. Cool places like the Preserve have Natural Resource Coordinators to help serve both the people and the land. Join Luke as he talks with John Loleit from the City of Scottsdale about a water catchment in the Preserve and how people and nature can work together.
Sharing (virtually) is caring! If you enjoy these newsletters, please pass them on to family and friends.
