The Mission of Steppes to the Desert is a non commercial effort to educate people on the biodiversity of the Arizona and the surrounding areas in the Southwest United States and Mexico. Our long term goal is to make people more excited to learn more, and be more impressed with the flora and fauna around them. Our pragmatic goal is to make "voters"more informed.
