What is so important about historic conservation? What is so important about the historic uses of Mojave Trails National Monument? How about the historic uses Mojave National Preserve or Death Valley? What are all the tailings about?

Join MDLT’s Education Coordinator Mary Cook-Rhyne for a multimodal Campfire Talk where she will share the variety of historic uses of the Mojave Desert. We will discuss everything from planes, trains, to automobiles. Campfire Talks are a series of presentations about the desert we love.
