Eriastrum sp. at Cave Creek Regional Park


The Central Arizona Conservation Alliance recognizes the foundational role research plays in the management and restoration of our regional preserve system. We also recognize that all too often, important scientific information does not it into the hands of the people who need it and can use it — our land conservation managers.

In order to best serve our region, the Alliance worked to create different avenues which we could utilize to contribute to the ever growing body of knowledge to help mitigate and manage the challenges we are seeing on our landscape. We’ve created several programs, citizen science opportunities, and supported research to meet our goal of supporting the efforts to conserving and protecting our open spaces.

Not a “scientist”? We disagree! Citizen science is an enormous tool with unlimited value. Join us in one of our many citizen science projects.
