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.
Nearly 100 Morongo Basin residents attended MBCA's 50th Anniversary Energy Summit on January 26 in Yucca Valley.
Keynote speakers Angelina Galiteva and S. David Freeman were described as "impressive" and "challenging" speakers.
Dr. Galiteva described the growing number of renewable energy achievements in California, noted in the Event Summary and illustrated in her PowerPoint slides. Mr. Freeman strongly emphasized that citizens must advocate for legislation demanding changes to move quickly toward 100% renewable energy.
The afternoon panel of four regional conservation leaders each described their organization's goals that are - in different ways - focused on desert preservation, environmental education, and climate change awareness. Links to their PowerPoint slides can also be found within the event summary below.
Here are some evaluation responses from those attending:
