Miles For MDLT
Participate in MDLT’s popular virtual fundraiser: Miles For MDLT this March. In October 2020, supporters raised more than $18,500 for MDLT by hiking our beautiful desert lands. Miles For MDLT is a chance to explore nature while actively protecting it!
This March, you can turn your regular hikes into a fundraiser. It’s easy. Share your miles with friends and family and ask them to donate to the Mojave Desert Land Trust. You will be helping to protect precious desert resources so that future generations can enjoy the land.
MDLT accepts gifts of land to assist in support of our mission. Lands identified as strategic conservation priorities are accepted as conservation land donations. Other land donations may be accepted for their financial value in support of the work of MDLT. Read more…

Outreach and Public Engagement Programs
Our passion and pursuit is to educate the public about land conservation, stewardship, increased environmental literacy and desert habitat awareness. We believe that environmental education encourages individuals to become informed, engaged, and responsible land stewards. Environmental education promotes scientific inquiry and knowledge; with this knowledge, communities are then enabled to see the human-ecosystem connection. Our outreach education programs empower individuals to develop the skills and confidence to become active citizen scientists, land stewards, and community members. Your support gives others a deeper appreciation for our fragile and beautiful desert.
Desert Discovery Learning Kits for Field Studies
Each Desert Discovery Kit provides a student with all materials and supplies to perform eight hands-on, experiential science lessons that increase knowledge and awareness of the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts’ unique ecological values. Topics for the kit include desert habitats and ecosystems, desert animals, light pollution Native People’s use of the desert lands and ecosystem management. With their environmental education focus, Desert Discovery Kits connect young students from underserved communities to the desert where they live and provide hands-on learning opportunities.
