Here is our newly designed website that will make finding information easy. Take a few minutes to look around. Note that each page has a sidebar with the upcoming meeting date. Information on the ‘Women In Blue’ Lunches will also be on the sidebar along with other information you need to know. Contact information is in the footer of each page. We also have a blog for getting caught up on topics of interest.

Also, we are looking for people who would like to write about politics for the blog. If that is something you are interested in contact us at

I want to thank all of you who helped us out for the mid-term election with phone calls. The mid term elections are over and its clear that the Democrats have considerable work to do before 2024. Arizona is full of election deniers. Like most of you I am exhausted. The continual stream of lies, disinformation, and hate are taking a toll on all of us. Yet, we need to prepare for the 2024 election. Arizona’s public education system is in serious trouble. Water shortages are critical, climate change is upon us, and the loss of biodiversity is ongoing. We are facing a series of crises that many Republicans deny exist.

We have to continue to educate the public and ourselves. JCM

I am a retired science educator and naturalist. My research focuses on reptiles, mostly snakes. Also, I am interested in dogs and their evolution. Protecting the environment should be a high priority for everyone, particularly politicians. They seem to be in denial over the idea that the environment is our life support system - once it's damaged, it may not be fixable.
