This site encourages the appreciation and preservation of Arizona native plants in their Sonoran Desert home.
All southwestern desert plants are threatened by loss of habitat to urban development
and destruction due to collection and off-road vehicle use.
Cattle ranching threatens ecosystems throughout the West, causing widespread
destruction of vegetation, streams, and soil.
The result is a patchwork of impoverished plant communities in a permanently altered landscape.
THANK YOU FOR VISITING!  Online since July 2000, serving cactus enthusiasts,
land management agencies, conservation organizations, and the public.  Photos have appeared in several publications.
