Islands in the sky?

We often hear the term “sky island” and wonder how our Arizona desert can have islands.

Plan to attend the March 4, 2019 Kino Lecture by Douglass Moore of the Friends of Madera Canyon as he educates us about the sky island in our own backyard as well as those throughout the Southwest. Mr. Moore will explain the biological diversity and individual characteristics of the mountains known as “sky islands” in and around our area.
