Desert Monuments Anniversary Celebration

Our desert community gathered at Cactus Mart on February 9, 2018 to mark the 2nd anniversary of our California Desert National Monuments. Local speakers from the office of San Bernardino County Supervisor James Ramos, Joshua Tree Excursions, Joshua Tree Gateway Communities, SummerTree Institute, Mojave Desert Land Trust, and the BLM, shared the impact and importance the Castle Mountains, Mojave Trails, and Sand to Snow Monuments have on our local area. Meg Foley of Friends of the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve emceed the presentation. The afternoon was also filled with live music, cake cutting, information sharing, and food.
