2015 SIRC Annual Report

SIRC has implemented a wide range of restoration projects across the Sky Islands to facilitate effective landscape restoration in both small scale, high priority habitats and across entire watersheds through collaborative community-based projects. The SIRC Fiscal Year 2015 Annual Report highlights 29 of these projects. These efforts protected water sources and enhanced wildlife habitat for a range of species including the endangered Chiricahua leopard frog, American antelope, and a wide range of pollinators like bees, bats, butterflies, and birds. In FY 2015 the partnership combined resources of over $2.8 million dollars. Not all volunteer contributions were tracked, but those reported were valued at more than $191,000.
