Support Us

Your charitable gift of support  to the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy helps protect all that you love about Scottsdale's McDowell Sonoran Preserve.  Your gift ensures that the Preserve continues to be a pristine open space to visit and enjoy, as well as a permanent sanctuary for wildlife. Your tax deductible gift will benefit our community and help protect Scottdale's McDowell Sonoran Preserve through:

  • Preserve Conservation: Supporting the Conservancy’s efforts to grow and retain our volunteer program, with the goal of reducing the ratio of 1 volunteer protecting 50 acres to 1 volunteer protecting 25 acres.
  • Sonoran Desert Stewardship: Expanded resources for the McDowell Sonoran Field Institute to create a leading-edge research program, allowing the Conservancy to understand how to protect the Preserve through the development and implementation of a long-term management plan.
  • Preservation Education: Expanded resources to educate the public on the benefits of a natural land preserve in our community and how they can help. 

We receive no funding from the City of Scottsdale, rather we rely on charitable contributions to fund our work. Only with your generous support will the Conservancy be able to keep the Preserve a beautiful place for leisure, recreation and the appreciation of nature for generations to come.
