Event Details

Discover the ancient peoples who were defined by the arid landscape of what is now Joshua Tree National Park. Anthropologist Daniel McCarthy, who has extensive experience leading archaeology field studies in Southern California, will discuss how archaeologists study human culture, history, and evolution through material remains and environmental landscapes.  The class will begin with an archaeological overview including an exclusive visit to see the artifacts and archival collections at Joshua Tree National Park’s Research Museum. The course will have two sessions in the field to study how landscapes relate to the prehistoric and historic peoples who lived in this area.  The field sessions will require short hikes in the desert and will provide students with new insights into the park's cultural heritage.  

 

Please note: The class will only visit publicly interpreted sites.

Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park

Exploring Nature through Education

The Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park is an adult and family education program offering an in-depth exploration of the park’s natural wonders. Learn from highly qualified instructors who are passionate about sharing their expertise, and committed to providing a personal and fun learning experience. The Desert Institute is sponsored by the Joshua Tree National Park Association, and operates with the full endorsement of the National Park Service. Join us this season for an educational adventure.

Field Classes

The Desert Institute offers outdoor field classes for adult learners in cultural history, natural science, survival skills, desert naturalist studies, citizen science, and creative arts. The Desert Institute also offers half day courses for children from 8-13 years and their parents.  Enrollment is open to all, and some courses may be taken for optional university credit. All field programs follow “Leave No Trace” principles to minimize impact on the desert environment, and where necessary, obtain special permits to access certain aspects of Joshua Tree National Park that would otherwise be restricted. Weekend courses ranging from one to three days are scheduled over two class semesters, Fall and Spring. Discounts are available for members of the Joshua Tree National Park Association and Partners in Nature Education.
