Antelope Valley, California is the western most section of the Mojave Desert, north of Los Angeles in what is known as the High Desert. With an elevation ranging from 2400 - 3000 feet, the principal cities are Lancaster and Palmdale. The area includes portions of Los Angeles, Kern, and San Bernardino Counties.
With continuing growth, sometimes called urban sprawl, there is a danger of losing what little remains of open space and wildlife habitat. Concerned citizens of the area are banding together to monitor and try to control any further loss of air quality, water usage and destruction of our natural area. The goal is not to ban all growth but to work together and ensure the flora and fauna are not wiped out in the name of progress.
