Exploring Joshua Tree National Park

Leaders: Todd Luce, University of California-Riverside; David Biggs, University of California-Riverside; and Patricia Limerick, Center of the American West, University of Colorado-Boulder.

We will also hear from National Park Service staff.

Designated a national monument in 1936, Joshua Tree became a national park in 1994. Famed for its twisted, bristled trees, the park straddles the Colorado and Mojave Deserts. Tour leaders will make several stops throughout the park and the historic community of 29 Palms, discussing energy development, desert recreation, preservation issues, and other topics.

Bring:  sunscreen and warm layers as the desert can get cold in spring.

Trip includes box lunch and bus transportation. 7:45 am – approximately 7:00 pm. Meet bus outside the convention center, in the parking lot, at 8:15 a.m.
