The Fragile Desert - New Edition Now Available
Purchase Your Copy Here

Much has been published about the lifestyle, plants and animals of the Sonoran Desert. The Foothills area is called "The Arizona Uplands" and has an elevation of 2500 to 4500 feet. The Fragile Desert addresses the issues that Foothills residents may encounter in adapting to, enjoying, and understanding the desert environment.

This easy to read 44 page booklet has been written by local experts as well as members of the DAC and contains practical information on living in the desert: how to protect domestic animals; descriptions of Sonoran Desert plants, their flowers, medicinal uses and food sources; and much about the native wildlife you may see in the Desert Foothills habitat.

It is NOT a field guide; it IS an essential guide to living in the Sonoran Desert!

The 2011 edition is now available for sale from local book shops and gift stores, or direct from Desert Awareness Committee. The cost is $10, plus $2 for shipping. Or you may pick up your copy at the FCF office on 60th Street.

We think you'll want to share with others the beauty and wonder of this exceptional landscape. The Fragile Desert makes a wonderful gift!
