"Desert Foothills Land Trust connects people to nature by working with communities and partners to conserve and steward sensitive lands and species for the survival of our fragile Sonoran Desert."

Our Work

Land Acquisition

Land protection is fundamental to the Land Trust's local conservation efforts. We hold land and conservation easements, and we partner with other agencies and organizations to support and encourage land protection efforts.

land Stewardship

Preserve monitoring and trail maintenance is an important part of keeping our preserves safe for wildlife and nature enthusiasts. Consider becoming a part of our volunteer team and help take care of our preserves.

Community engagement through education and outreach efforts helps connect people to nature and builds support for conservation efforts. Our work provides many ways to volunteer as well as opportunities to learn about and explore the land.
