natural beauty, shared responsibility
The McDowell Sonoran Conservancy was founded in 1991 with the mission to champion the sustainability of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. The land steward ensures safe enjoyable access while maintaining an ecological balance for all who visit Scottsdale's McDowell Sonoran Preserve. This year, the organization is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
We are honored to have been one of the first corporations to financially support the Conservancy. Our APS Community Connectors are among the Conservancy’s more than 600 volunteers who, among other duties, patrol trails, restore damaged desert habitat and educate the public about the preserve through hikes, lectures and outreach programs.
Through these efforts, we are working to ensure Arizona’s natural beauty is maintained. We encourage you to explore the state, and to help protect our landscape.​
