Borderlands Restoration is a group that Bob and I found out about after we moved to Patagonia AZ in September of 2014. The people involved are working to preserve the wildlife corridor, the land surrounding it, and the wildlife that inhabit it, helping to maintain the pristine beauty of Mother Earth. Here is another example of how the people are able to do their part to bring back the beauty and sustainability of the earth to be in harmony with all of us. It is up to us to co-operate with each other and all of life to create that harmony once more. See below what the Borderlands Restoration group has announced as their Mission.
Our goal is to reconnect wildlife, land, and people in the Arizona/Sonora Borderland region by involving people in restoring the ecosystem on which we depend.
Restoring functional physical landscape processes, growing and planting native plants, and supporting springs and pollinators are just some of the vital activities in our work, but they remain incomplete without a third essential step: forging and maintaining bonds between people and the natural world, and providing opportunities for each to flourish in tandem. We are convinced that habitat restoration is not sustainable unless local citizens understand the benefits received from the work, and actively participate in restoring ecosystems and ecosystem services in their own communities. Through this approach, we have simultaneously demonstrated that a “restoration economy”—a cultivated network of relationships whereby people gain skills and the capacity to make their livings by caring for place—is both feasible and, today, necessary if we are collectively to surmount public/private and other divides in the face of shared threats to the ecosystems on which lives and livelihoods depend.
