Southwest Regional Office Field Reports

NPCA’s Southwest Regional Office prepares a field report twice a year that focuses on the parks and people of this special part of the country. We also highlight some of the very complex and challenging threats our parks face.

In the Winter 2021 Southwest Region Field Report (pdf, 471 KB) we highlight:

  • Safe from Oil & Gas Development…for Now on protecting Arches and Canyonlands from a fire sale of nearby oil and gas leases last fall
  • A New Day for Parks and Public Lands highlighting park protection opportunities at the dawn of 2021
  • News from the Southwest Region updating folks on park expansion bills, lawsuits and executive orders
  • Clean Air and Climate a Priority for the Southwest on regional haze efforts throughout the region
  • Expanding Protections for Parks in Arizona spelling out good news for Saguaro and aspirations for other parks
