Desert Indoors

The Mojave Desert Land Trust is committed to helping people of all ages connect to and better understand our beloved Mojave Desert. Because we are all spending more time at home, our Outreach & Public Engagement team has developed our ALL NEW Desert Indoors weekly educational series and resource web page. Adapted from our Desert Discovery Field Studies (DDFS) program, Desert Indoors provides free content to help you learn more about this desert we love. Check back each week for new programming. Everything is designed for you to use at home, your backyard, or nearby open land. We have translated some modules into Spanish as well!

Please note, in compliance with the Governor’s shelter-in-place order, MDLT and Joshua Tree National Park are closed to the public. We encourage you to stay local (keeping in and near home whenever possible) and always abide by our state’s latest safety protocols including social distancing. We want you to stay safe and healthy while being engaged and educated. That’s what Desert Indoors is all about!

Desert Indoors is supported in part by the Anderson Children’s Foundation, Edison International, and Trilogy.
