What we do
Whether it’s exploring Sedona’s red rocks, exploring Kartchner Caverns or enjoying a special place closer to home, Arizona’s natural wonders enrich our lives in countless ways. Yet the places we love and the values we share are too often threatened.
We research the issues and educate the public about what’s at stake. Through our reports, news conferences and interviews with reporters, we help the media cover environmental issues in ways that make sense. Our canvassers meet citizens where they are — starting conversations in public places or going door to door — explaining our mission while raising awareness and funds for environmental protection.
When decisions are being made about our environment, our elected officials hear plenty from the oil companies, developers and other powerful interests. We speak up for our environment, making our case to public officials and helping you make your voice heard when it matters most.

- Historic Action to Reduce Carbon Pollution. Carbon pollution spewing from power plants threatens Americans' health. Doctors, nurses and scientists warn that it triggers global warming, which triggers poor air quality, contributes to thousands of asthma attacks, heart attacks and fatal diseases. Scientists also warn that global warming is expected to lead to more devasting floods, heat waves and more severe storms.
- Go Solar Arizona. We have more solar power than any other state in the U.S., yet less than 2 percent of our energy comes from the sun. In 2012, we launched our campaign to urge Arizona's officials to take a stand for clean energy and set us on a path to put up at least 250,000 solar roofs by 2020.
- Save Oak Flat. Sixty miles east of Phoenix, a beautiful stretch just past the Susperstition Mountains known as Oak Flat could become the site of the nation's largest copper mining operation. But in 2012, Environment Arizona stepped into this fight with full force, contacting decision makers, writing letters to the editor and reaching out to citizens across the state to save this incredible place.
