In compliance with the Governor’s Shelter-in-place order, Mojave Desert Land Trust is closed to the public. We are dedicated to helping students and parents negate the impacts of the “Stay-at-Home Order” on student education. As such, we have created modules that students and parents can use to continue scientific environmental education at home.
