|Dreamy Draw/Preserve Reminders|

During work in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve, the following strategies are being used to minimize environmental disturbance:
• Using adequate water to ensure dust opacity is zero
• Protecting open trenches with fencing and netting to prevent tortoises from entering work areas
• Protecting plants, cacti and trees in place when possible rather than moving them
• Inspecting work areas, equipment and personal vehicles before use to avoid injury to tortoises and other animals
