Event Details

From the swirling sands of Kelso Dunes to Hole in the Wall’s violent volcanic remnants, Mojave National Preserve serves as a showcase of ancient and modern geologic processes.  Rocks here reveal the stories of prehistoric landscapes as old as 2.7 billion years - over half the age of the Earth!  Explore and learn about the geology of the vast Mojave National Preserve with Ted Reeves, on this two night camping excursion with a base camp at the Hole-In-The-Wall campground.  You will need to provide your own camping equipment, food and drinks as there are few facilities in this national preserve.  Weather could be cold.  This class will take you to spectacular locations within the Mojave National Preserve.  Don’t miss out on this opportunity!

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.
