The McDowell Sonoran Conservancy is a non-profit organization dedicated to stewardship of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Since its founding in 1991, the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy has championed the need for, establishment of, and safe public access to Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve. The Conservancy works with the City of Scottsdale to ensure completion, management and public appreciation of the Preserve; educate residents and visitors about the Preserve’s environmental and archaeological significance; ensure the public has appropriate access to the land they have repeatedly voted to protect. The Conservancy offers several ways for the community to get involved and give back by providing public access to the Preserve, protecting the Preserve through research and stewardships, and participating in educational programs and/or community events. If you are interested in learning about volunteer opportunities or donor programs, please visit their full website at McDowellSonoran.org. 100% of sponsorship dollars and fundraising from the Tour de Scottsdale supports the mission of the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy.
