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.
