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.
Here is a brief summary of November issues and important meetings.
Celebrations of the 20th Anniversary of the California Desert Protection Act.
This is the big month of celebrations!
Go to the CDPA website for all the details.
Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan (DRECP)
Several dozen Morongo Basin residents attended the first DRECP Public Comment meeting in Victorville on October 29. A second meeting in the desert has been added, in Joshua Tree, on Wednesday, November 19, at 5:30 PM in the Joshua Tree Community Center. Please come and make your voice heard, urging the agency officials to increase the focus on distributed and rooftop renewable energy, and to place large-scale projects only on already disturbed lands.
Many Morongo Basin residents attended the Victorville DRECP meeting and most of them made public comments.
MBCA Treasurer Steve Bardwell and President Sarah Kennington discuss DRECP maps.
