“I’m from the north of England. As someone who isn’t a local resident and therefore can’t get involved in the volunteering projects the Mojave Desert Land Trust run, I felt that becoming a recurring donor was the best way for me to help conserve and protect the Mojave Desert.

Joshua Tree National Park and the surrounding hi-desert areas have to be my favorite places I’ve ever visited. I love how the desert seems to be this vast open space but it’s actually teaming with life. It’s mesmerizing.

I believe it’s extremely important to protect the desert ecosystems not just for the immediate future, but for generations to come.”

“As rock climbers, we take special interest in the outdoors and the environment that we climb in. The Mojave Desert is one of the most fascinating areas for me to explore. All of the plants have such unique survival stories when it comes to weathering the extreme temperatures and other elements. The more I’ve learned, the more I’ve realized how fragile this ecosystem is. Naturally, this led me to take an interest in the Mojave Desert Land Trust as they are a nonprofit dedicated to preserving the Mojave. What I especially admire about MDLT is how it coordinates financial and volunteer resources to save and/or rehabilitate tracts of land from development or abuse.

Because we run a rock climbing guide service in Joshua Tree National Park, we are especially interested in learning more about the native flora and fauna from MDLT to improve our services for our guests and become better stewards of the environment we live, play and work in!”
