Welcome to the Morongo Basin Conservation Association.  MBCA advocates for a healthy desert environment that nurtures our rural character, cultural wealth and economic well-being.   If you share that vision, join us.

December 2014

A bit of rain in early December is certainly a welcome start to the winter season.  Let’s hope there will be more!  (and maybe even some snow?)

MBCA members will be receiving membership renewal notices this month, since January is the start of our new membership year.  Please mark your calendar for our Annual Meeting on Saturday, January 24.  We will have motivating speakers and will update you on all of our conservation concerns.  More details about membership renewal and the Annual Meeting will be sent to everyone on our “MBCA News” Eblast list and updates will be posted here, as well.

Enjoy the holiday season and try to SHOP LOCAL for gifts.  Our tourism economy is essential to our economic well-being here in the Morongo Basin, but each of us should also do our part!

Hey that’s an idea – when the units don’t sell as homes the developers can repurpose the project as a prison! The good news that we heard at the MAC meeting last night is that the public comment period has been extended 30 days. More time for us to get the word out & let folks know how important it is to express opposition to County Planning. This project certainly warrants a CEQA report to avoid the great potential for unfortunate impacts to the landscape & community we love and work to protect!

Site looks great. Let’s beat back the Altamira Project, we don’t need something that looks like a Minimum Security Prison on paper.

Great to know you’re with us, Tom! Pat Flanagan gets many gold stars for the work she did researching Alta Mira. That should get a lot of folks in the Basin’s attention and hopefully plenty of response to County Planning demanding that housing project is rejected.
