Coachella Valley Desert and Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority
In 2019, under the state’s Joint Exercise of Powers law, the Conservancy and the Desert Recreation District formed the Coachella Valley Desert and Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority. The Authority brings together conservation and recreation expertise to expand public access to open space and enhance the public’s understanding of the value of conservation efforts in the face of climate change in the Coachella Valley. The Authority functions as a legally separate local government entity with its own governing board. Meeting notices for the Authority can be found on the Meetings link on this site.
