Wild Arizona’s mission is to protect, link, and restore wild lands and waters across Arizona and beyond, for the enrichment and health of all citizens, and to ensure Arizona's native plants and animals a lasting home in wild nature. We organize and amplify multi-community voices of support for legislation and special designations; advocate for conservation science-based environmental policy and planning; and cultivate stewardship, social/environmental awareness, and well-being through outdoor volunteerism, science, and education.
Wild Arizona is the newly launched merger of Arizona Wilderness Coalition with the Grand Canyon Wildlands Council. We are blending two long-standing conservation organizations with strong roots in Arizona’s rich conservation history, the wilderness movement, the Colorado River community, deep ecology/rewilding, outdoor adventure, field-based ecological research, hands-on habitat restoration, and working for and with tribal partners.

My first project was the removal of an unauthorized roadway in the Sonoran Desert Nat'l Monument. Great bunch of very enthusiastic volunteers. Project leader laid out the steps necessary for removing the roadway, and then let everyone work at their own pace. Radical concept. Could not believe we made that roadway dissappear so thoroughly. Well, about a hundred yards of it anyway. Still more work to do. I have enlisted my Nephew and his sons for the next phase of the project.
