MBCA is so very grateful, along with thousands of Morongo Basin residents, for the incredible efforts of all firefighters on the Lake Fire in the San Bernardino National Forest.  We are tremendously saddened by the loss of so many acres of forest and desert ecosystems,  but grateful that there were so few structures lost and no lost lives.

To learn more about fire ecology, visit the website of the Association for Fire Ecology.

 

While your landscape sizzles in the summer sun, you might want to take a few moments to read the winning essays from the 2015 Desert-Wise Landscape Post-Tour Essay Contest, to help you envision possibilities for your own landscape and garden next spring! 

 Enjoy this Mariposa lily bloom from a garden on the Mesa!

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.
