Dear MBCA Members and Supporters,
This year MBCA’s Landscape Tour will be held over Earth Day weekend. If you haven’t participated in previous years, you won’t want to miss this popular self-guided Tour! A total of 21 beautiful home landscapes will showcase drought-tolerant landscapes – 10 sites on Sat. April 22nd and 13 sites on Sun. April 23rd. For veterans of previous Tours, you will see several wonderful new sites on the map!
Day 1:  9am – 4pm on Saturday, April 22, 2017
Features 10 sites on the EAST side of the Morongo Basin, including Joshua Tree, Twentynine Palms, and the Native Plant Nursery at Joshua Tree National Park.
Day 2:  9am – 4pm on Sunday, April 23, 2017
Features 13 sites on the WEST side of the Morongo Basin, including Morongo Valley, Pioneertown, Yucca Valley, Flamingo Heights, and Landers.
Tour participants have the unique opportunity to meet and talk with the experts, the homeowners themselves, whose inspiring personal sanctuaries blend low water consumption with artful desert living. They’ll see an abundance of native, drought-tolerant and water-efficient plants, as well as creative uses of other landscaping elements—from architectural shading and outdoor “rooms” to pathways, sitting areas, rockscapes, found objects, yard art and potted plants.
You can register online at mbconservation.org now through 5pm on April 21st.  $10 per person donation is requested for Non-Members/$5 Members. A link to the online version of the Tour Book with detailed descriptions and directions will be sent to all online registrants starting in mid-April.
You may also register in-person on the days of the Landscape Tour, or if you registered online, you may pick up a Tour Book at the places listed below.

The Desert-Wise Landscape Tour has become a hallmark of MBCA’s annual programing. The Tour Committee puts in countless hours scouting sites and preparing the many details for a successful Tour. I cannot thank the Committee, the site Hosts, site Docents, Underwriters (Mojave Water Agency, our Basin water agencies and Southern California Edison), and Sponsors (Cactus Mart and Unique Garden Center) enough – you are the very BEST and show the Basin to be the great community that we know it to be!
