CALL TO ACTION!
We need supporters to join Save the Dells on Wednesday, February 5th at the Arizona State Capitol. Conservation Director Joe Trudeau will lead a Save the Dells Delegation to Arizona’s Environmental Day on February 5th at the State Capitol to ask for support of Representative Noel Campbell’s state budget request to help purchase a priority parcel of private land in the Granite Dells. We need a large showing of Dells supporters, some of which are willing to speak on behalf of the Dells. If needed, Save the Dells will cover travel expenses. Carpooling is recommended.
If you are interested, please RSVP by emailing Joe Trudeau at email@example.com. We ask that attendees also come to a lobbying training session on Friday, January 17th from 6:30-8:30PM at the Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation located at 882 Sunset Avenue in Prescott. At this session, you will get an overview of the Arizona Legislature’s track record on important environmental issues, learn about legislative plans for 2020, and hear how citizens can help protect Arizona’s air, land, water, and wildlife by joining the Request to Speak system.

what the experts are saying
"The Granite Dells are one of the original places I started teaching outdoor survival skills. From various media to the Yavapai Tribe, to Prescott High school students and the Ecosa Institute, the Dells are a unique natural habitat that not only teach people to stay alive but inspire respect for the outdoors. The Dells need careful consideration in land use planning - and they need conservation - to be certain they continue to teach and inspire generations to come."
