It’s Art for Land’s Sake – The Art of Nature

Early inhabitants of our state were drawn to the awe-inspiring landscape that is the Sonoran Desert. Its unique flora and fauna continue to draw people from all over the world to it today. Desert Foothills Land Trust understands the importance of preserving this special place for the survival of the species that dwell here and for the enjoyment of generations to come. It’s a landscape worthy of not only protecting forever, but immortalizing through art as well.
