DPC, and other like-minded organizations, have been working diligently to expose and slow down the destructive industrial-scale development of solar and wind projects on public lands in the desert. One key to success is the ability to raise awareness and support for an approach that prioritizes renewable developments on already degraded areas, on rooftops, and in the built environment. Such an opportunity is at hand!

We Need Your Help! We’re asking you for one more phone call or email asking Governor Brown to sign the Bobcat Protection Act.
In order for this to become a law in January 2014, it must be signed by October 13th. The trapping / hunting lobby will also be making calls, requesting that he not sign the bill.

How our California Deserts will look in the near future and beyond will be determined, to a large extent, as a result of the current planning process of the DRECP, or Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan.
We asked the federal and state agencies to come to the desert to hear our comments and concerns regarding the plan to locate industrial renewable energy projects in the California Desert.
They have agreed to meetings in the Morongo Basin this Friday evening and Saturday morning.
