Exploring Sky Islands

Here in Southern Arizona, we live in one of the most unique environments in the world. We’re famous for the natural beauty of our landscape, and that landscape also boasts an incredible range of plants, birds, and animals thanks to the mountains that rise above our desert basins. We call those mountains Sky Islands - they are home to an astonishing level of biodiversity, a multitude of species that live in the cooler, wetter habitats at higher elevations. Runs through Summer 2015
