Mogollon Highlands Initiative

Mapping our Unique Region

Based out of Prescott, Arizona, the Natural History Institute has seen a need to better define, promote, and celebrate the transition zone that surrounds us, an area that we have come to call the Mogollon Highlands.

Thanks in large part to our 2015 Matching Gift Campaign, research is underway to define and map our area—one that is sandwiched between the Colorado Plateau to the north and Sonoran Desert to the south. Although the Mogollon Highlands contain characteristics and biota from both these regions, and beyond, the assemblage of plants and animals found here is unique.

As our findings, maps, and descriptions become available, we will post them here.
