Close to a rapidly growing city (Prescott, Arizona), the Granite Dells is a geologic wonderland that supports a functioning natural ecosystem and provides abundant high-quality, low-impact recreational opportunities. However, much of the landscape remains in private hands is vulnerable to development. The Granite Dells Preservation Foundation is dedicated to protecting as much as possible of this landscape and providing ecological and historical interpretation to the public.
The Granite Dells of Prescott is the iconic landscape for this central Arizona city, but it is under threat of development from all sides. I am co-founder of the Granite Dells Preservation Foundation (https://www.granitedells.org/) and Save the Dells political action committee (https://www.savethedells.org/), complementary organizations working to protect land and create a greater Granite Dells Park & Preserve. I use hundreds of my photographs and my artwork to help this cause, and I speak out at every opportunity.
