The 2020 Desert-Wise Landscape Tour has been totally reimagined as a free, virtual experience. The virtual landscape tour, presented in 6 separate short videos, has now been edited into a film: Living in Harmony with Desert Landscapes. This video illustrates the diversity of approaches to landscape and acknowledges the support of the different water agencies for MBCA’s desert wise living programs. For 2021, MBCA has again committed to a virtual event that will showcase water and energy-wise landscapes throughout the Morongo Basin. Please stay tuned for forthcoming announcements.
Each video segment showcases an exceptional local property where drought-tolerant, native landscaping flourishes and offers a creative execution seen both at ground level and from high above in spectacular drone footage.
From the comfort of your own home, you will have a free, all-access ticket as you are guided through private sites in Twentynine Palms, Flamingo Heights, Pioneertown, Yucca Valley and Morongo Valley. A primary aim of the Desert-Wise Landscape Tour is to offer practical examples of inspiring, rich native landscapes.
Any size donation in support of MBCA’s mission “to advocate for the healthy desert environment that nurtures the region's rural character, cultural wealth and economic well-being” is most welcome. Or join us as a member now through 2021!
The Desert-Wise Landscape Tour is sponsored in part by the Bighorn-Desert View Water Agency, Golden State Water Company, Hi-Desert Water District, Joshua Basin Water District, Mojave Water Agency, and Twentynine Palms Water District.
