When it comes to restoring the Southwest's native plants, Native Seeds/SEARCH isn't going it alone. The internationally-recognized seed-saving nonprofit and Tucson institution has partnered with Pima County to bring native grasses and other vegetation back to the county's disrupted landscapes, and to educate county residents about their efforts and why they matter.

Kerry Baldwin, Pima County's natural resource division manager, joins Arizona Illustrated to discuss the partnership's projects.
