The Cultural Legacy of the Mojave Desert- Part 1

November 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Prehistoric use of the California Desert Land by Past Peoples

Who were the first land conservationists? What is so important about cultural conservation? What does that even mean? What is so important about the Mojave Trails National Monument? How about the Mojave National Preserve? 

Join MDLT’s Education Coordinator Mary Cook-Rhyne for a multimodal Campfire Talk where she will share the variety of prehistoric uses of the Mojave Desert by humans.

We will discuss everything from the Ice Age to the recent past. Campfire Talks are a series of presentations about the desert we love. 

S’more fixings and warm beverages will be offered for your enjoyment.

We will move the presentation indoors if the weather is uncooperative.
