Biodiversity in the Heart of the Sky Islands

General Admission: $20
Passes Not Accepted
Soaring mountains in southeast AZ stand as virtual forested islands surrounded by “seas” of deserts and grasslands. This “Sky Island” region hosts world-class biodiversity, containing more species than any comparable area in the U.S. The Patagonia Mountains and Sonoita Creek lie in the heart of the Madrean Sky Islands or Madrean Archipelago, supporting a dazzling array of native flora and fauna. Discover the rich ecology and inherent beauty of these key wild areas – including new threats to their valuable natural resources. Will generations to come have these natural treasures to enjoy or will they be carelessly squandered? (Dir. by Vincent Pinto & Michele Gisser, USA, 2023)
All proceeds benefit Patagonia Area Resource Alliance, a non-profit organization working to ensure that mining activities in the Patagonia Mountains meet the highest science-based standards in order to protect our region’s natural assets.
