About DEAR

Our mission is to improve the environmental integrity of high desert ecosystems, in collaboration with public and private agencies, through restoration, education, and research. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Grand Junction, Colorado.

We promote maintaining sustainable habitats for populations of native flora and fauna, are concerned about the environmental factors impacting these species, and acknowledge the importance of quality soils and water in this ecosystem. We are concerned about the loss of habitat, threats to water resources and climate change, factors that may lead to tremendous pressure and irreversible changes.
