Desert Foothills Land Turst and North Country Conservancy announce Merger of Conservation Efforts for Daisy Mountain and the North Valley:
"The North Country Conservancy(NCC) has merged its mission, non-monetary assets, and preservation efforts with Desert Foothills Land Trust(DFLT), bringing the resources of the two land trust groups together to protect our area's Sonoran Desert treasures.
NCC was founded more than a decade ago with the focus of preserving the State Trust lands known as Daisy Mountain. They have also worked to advance a trail system for the mountain to promote connectivity with the public.
The Kiwanis Club of New River will be the beneficiary of NCC's remaining funds. As part of a restricted monetary grant agreement, the New River Kiwanis will disburse these funds to be used for grant purposes on qualified projects that preserve Daisy Mountain's natural resources, open spaces, wildlife habitat, and historic or geologic features for the enjoyment of current and future generations. The New River Kiwanis also agreed to make reasonable efforts to raise matching funds when used in conjunction with a qualified disbursement of these funds."
FRIENDS OF DAISY MOUNTAIN TRAILS, a new corporation, has been formed to promote new trails on Daisy Mountain. The corporation is a 501 (c) 3 so donations may be tax deductible. Visit their website: www.DaisyMountainTrails.org
