Welcome to the Morongo Basin Conservation Association. MBCA advocates for the healthy desert environment that nurtures the region's rural character, cultural wealth and economic well-being. If you share that vision, join us.
On November 16 MBCA filed a comment letter with San Bernardino County in response to the Draft Environmental Impact Report on the proposed Ord Mountain Solar and Energy Project near Lucerne Valley. Director Pat Flanagan once again researched and wrote a detailed analysis of the Ord Mountain DEIR, with technical input and data from a GIS analyst and others. A number of maps, charts, and aerial photos provide extensive documentation to explain the many potential negative impacts of such a project.
Co-authoring MBCA's comment letter with exceptional assistance on the development of data-rich maps was Brian Hammer, Professional Data/GIS Analyst and Adjunct Professor at Victor Valley College in the Agriculture and Natural Resource Department.
For additional background, read MBCA's June 2017 Scoping letter on the Ord Mountain project.
