The Mojave Desert Land Trust was featured in June’s Desert Report in an article entitled “Consolidating Public Lands One Piece at a Time” by our Conservation Director Frazier Haney. The piece focuses on the land management history of the Mojave Desert and our organization’s role in putting together the puzzle of public lands.
You’ve rallied. You’ve commented. Now, let’s come together one more time to stand up for our Mojave Monuments. MDLT will be holding a final Desert Defenders rally at our HQ in Joshua Tree to celebrate our campaign, our community, and — of course — our national monuments. Join us for an inspiring evening of music, speakers, and a Q&A session about what we can expect going forward for our desert.
