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. In 2019 we celebrate our 50th Anniversary! If you share that vision, join us.
Join us on Saturday morning, September 28, for MBCA's Fall Desert-Wise Living Program. We are pleased to have the General Manager of the Mojave Water Agency, Tom McCarthy, delivering the keynote "Water for the Morongo Basin - the Next 50 Years."
A sampling of breakfast treats from Boo's Organic Oven in Joshua Tree will be offered during the opening reception from 9-9:30 AM. The program will begin at 9:30 and conclude by 11 AM.
As September 28 is National Public Lands Day, we will celebrate and salute the 25th Anniversary of the California Desert Protection Act as we concurrently celebrate MBCA's 50th Anniversary with historical documents and photos on display.
More details can be found in our Press Release about this event. We hope to see you there!
