Conservation Services

We’re your partner for restoring and transforming thriving habitats.

We connect plants, land, and water to transform damaged and/or degraded lands into thriving, species-rich habitats across the southwest. Ranches, farms, yards, and parks. No project is too big or small. We do it all–with conservation in mind.
Contact one of our water harvesting specialists to learn how High Desert uses restoration ecology to create the conditions needed on your land for plants, animals, and soils to thrive.

What is restoration ecology?

Given the opportunity, natural systems repair themselves. Restoration ecology is the process of creating that opportunity. At High Desert, we focus on setting the conditions needed for nature to take its natural course. We use a mix of water harvesting and permaculture techniques to build healthy soils; then, from the ground up, the land transforms.
