Supported Research

In early 2013, through a series of collaborative sessions, the Alliance developed initial research priorities necessary to support the protection and restoration of the preserve system. Drawing on the expertise and experience from across the partnership, the Alliance coordinates this research and summarizes findings to inform decision-making.

Additionally, the Alliance is working to collect and catalog any and all research conducted on or otherwise relevant to our regional desert mountain preserve system.
