The Mojave Desert Land Trust protects the unique living landscapes of the Mojave and Colorado Deserts.

MDLT has conserved more than 100,000 acres of prime desert habitat, forever weaving together national parks, national monuments, wilderness areas, and wildlife linkage corridors. The organization works closely with a broad range of desert community members and visitors, as well as with local, state, and federal agencies. MDLT offers hands-on learning and volunteer opportunities to residents and visitors of the desert. It collaborates closely with, and is supported by, a diverse range of partner organizations, agencies, neighbors, and visitors who treasure the desert’s unique qualities.

Our mission is to protect the Mojave Desert ecosystem and its scenic and cultural resource values.

Our vision for the Mojave Desert includes dark night skies, clean air and water, broad views and vistas, and an abundance of native plants and animals.
