Protect Our Preserve!

Website for POP - Protect our Preserve  

On the proposed Desert Discovery Center (DDC), to be located at the Gateway trailhead.

We are forming a corporation called Protect Our Preserve (POP). POP is an organization of Scottsdale residents who are passionate about keeping the McDowell Sonoran Preserve free of development, other than trails and minimal facilities for trail heads, as per the original reasons for creating the Preserve almost 24 years ago. Our goal is to keep the Preserve in as pristine a state as possible so locals, visitors and native wildlife can enjoy the beauty of this land in its natural state for generations to come.

Our organization is strong with nearly 400 members and is growing every day. We have developed an official website and Facebook page to spread information, solicit members and volunteers and donations to generate awareness and to fund efforts to prevent construction of the Desert Discovery Center in the Preserve. Please help Protect our Preserve by doing the following:

1. Visit our website at http://www.protectourpreserve.org/

2. Like us on

on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/protectourpreserve/

3. Consider making a donation at https://www.gofundme.com/244s8ax5

4. Share this information with your friends, neighbors, and social networks to help inform residents and build our member and volunteers list.

5. Volunteer to help us! We are looking for people with skills in all areas; web design, video editing, fundraising, exploring legal issues, networking, and willingness to volunteer their time attending meetings and spreading our message.


Please reply to us with questions and comments at info@protectourpreserve.org.

Protecting OUR Preserve from this threat will take a significant effort, but together we can, and will, Protect our Preserve.

Thank you for your dedication to the Preserve and protecting it from development.

Howard Myers for POP
