Balancing Tourism with Conservation and Preservation

About this Event

The popular Black Rock Symposium will continue on Friday, February 28, 2020, to feature a panel-based symposium on relevant topics affecting Joshua Tree National Park and Gateway Communities. The second event of this symposium series will be “Balancing Tourism with Conservation and Preservation”. As the visitation to Joshua Tree National Park continues to increase, there is a need for a discussion on how to balance tourism with the park's mandate to conserve and to preserve the land and ecology of the park. The panelists of this program will be a representative of Visit California, a nonprofit organization with a mission to develop and maintain marketing programs – in partnership with the state’s travel industry – that inspire travel to California, a representative of the Greater Palm Springs Convention and Visitor Bureau and David Smith, Superintendent of Joshua Tree National Park. The moderator will be Dr. Daren Otten, President and Superintendent of Copper Mountain College.

Sponsored by the Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park and Copper Mountain College and funded by a grant from the California Grassroots Fund of the Rose Foundation, this symposium will be held at the Bell Center on the campus of Copper Mountain College on Friday, February 28, 7 pm – 8:30 pm. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Pre-registration is requested. For more information, contact the Desert Institute at (760) 367-5537, desertinstitute@joshuatree.org, or visit www.joshuatree.org.
