MBCA continues to oppose the Cadiz Water Project and we are glad to learn of a new development that brings another potential problem to their plan. The National Parks Conservation Association published a Press Release today noting that the California State Lands Commission has found that the project's plan will require State review because the plan crosses State-owned land. You can read MBCA's prior news posts about Cadiz and other water issues on our Water Issues page.
An excellent event for interested desert gardeners, this 12th annual program of the Desert Horticultural Society provides speakers and demonstrations on many desert gardening topics.

Learn more about the event and find a detailed schedule at this link and consider a trip "down the hill" to expand your desert gardening expertise!
