Desert Survivors in the Arizona borderlands, near Mexico, on the
Historic El Camino del Diablo during an April 2015 trip to the Cabeza
Prieta National Wildlife Refuge. Participants viewed the impacts
of fences, vehicle barriers, and illegally created roads on fragile
desert ecosystems. The Cabeza Prieta is one of the most endangered
wildlife refuges. Naturalist and Sonoran Desert advocate Fred
Goodsell joined the trip and discussed what can be done to reduce these
impacts. Desert Survivors recognizes the ecological disasters
"securing the border" has had on the deserts shared by Mexico and the
U.S. Become a Desert Survivors member and join us our

& UPCOMING EVENTS
SUMMER 2015 TRIP SCHEDULE IS HERE!
Summer has the highest temperatures of the year and most southern and
low-elevation deserts are too hot for safe or comfortable
visiting. The high elevations are surprisingly temperate this
time of year and Desert Survivors beats the heat by sponsors trips to
desert mountain regions. We have car camping trips with day hikes
to the tops of King Lear Peak, NV, White Mountain and Telescope Peaks
in California. In August Dave Oline will lead a trip into
Nevada's newest wilderness area: The Wovoka. In September we are
sponsoring car camps to The Mojave National Preserve and Gold Butte in
Nevada. We also celebrate the long days and warm weather of the
season at our annual summer picnic at the Marta Perry family
ranch near Castro Valley, CA. Join us for the fun at all
of these events. Please go to the TRIPS PAGE for more info.
