DPC End of Year Update

Dear Desert Protective Council Members and AllDesert Lovers,

Everyone at Desert Protective Council wishes to express a heartfelt thanks to our wonderful patrons, members and friends, for your support this past year. Your ongoing contributions are critical to our continued work in protecting our southwest deserts.

We have an ambitious agenda for 2014, as we continue to educate the public and our local state and congressional decision-makers about the importance of promoting rooftop solar and local distributed generation.

It is vital that we use the built environment as the alternative to scraping hundreds of thousands of acres of remote wild desert habitats for industrial scale energy development.

Desert Documentary

Main Content Inline SmallWe will also continue our collaboration with filmmakers Backcountry Pictures, in the development of an educational documentary for national television about the wonder, the beauty and importance of the Mojave, Sonoran and Colorado deserts.

DPC will assist in the recruitment of desertecologists, knowledgeable desert explorers and residents, willing to be interviewed and conduct tours of the desert in order to obtain footage of beautiful, threatened desert areas.

We will also collaborate with our colleagues to help locate funding for the research and development phase, as well as the production of the desertdocumentary.
