The White Tank Mountains Conservancy has partnered with Central Arizona Conservation Alliance (CAZCA), Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department and McDowell Sonoran Conservancy on their Desert Defenders program. The overall goal of the program is to preserve sustainable ecosystems that all life depends on for food, shelter, habitat, clean air, cooler temperatures, improved water quality, just to name a few of the ecological benefits our natural areas provide. Plus, they provide beautiful, safe open spaces for healthy communities.
The Desert Defenders program is focused on finding, mapping and removing invasive species at Maricopa County parks using a map-based mobile app. Training sessions are held regularly within Maricopa County as part of the regional effort to restore the parks and preserves.
