The fight is not Over!

Through an unfortunate twist, the court has ruled against the City of Palm Springs in the first round of the legal battle to protect Oswit Canyon.

We are motivated to fight harder! We cannot imagine the possibility of hundreds of homes and a massive flood control structure resulting in the destruction of the precious wildlife of Oswit.


There is only one way to FOREVER SAVE OSWIT CANYON. We need to purchase the land and put the property into the permanent protective care of a land conservancy.

The current owners of the Oswit property have indicated a willingness to sell. As the terms are finalized, we need to raise funds to supplement the substantial financial contribution from the land conservancy. Please donate and help us raise the remaining funds!


  • MAKE A TAX-DEDUCTIBLE CHARITABLE DONATION. Community members have already stepped forward with commitments ranging from $100 to $100,000. We have one chance to get this done, and the time for action and giving is NOW!

  • Hold a neighborhood fundraiser at your home - we will attend and assist!

  • Volunteer your own fundraising skills at this critical time.

  • Use your personal network to build support and gather contributions.

*Save Oswit Canyon is a group of nearly 2000 Palm Springs residents working tirelessly to save Oswit canyon.

(Any donations of $10,000 or more will appear on a sign at the entrance to the canyon.)
