The California desert is an open space, but not an empty space. Its vast natural landscape holds rich history and remarkable ecosystems. But pressures are fierce to develop the desert in ways that would raze the landscape, alter its natural characteristics, and affect the experience of life in the desert for generations to come.
Who decides the future of the desert?
The California Desert Coalition (CDC) elevates the voices of the people of the California desert. We build grassroots coalitions of desert lovers to promote deeper understanding of complex public policy issues. We bring our voices to bear on local, state, and federal decision-making processes that impact our desert.
