Event Details

The Desert Queen Mine hike is designed for people who want to know more about Joshua Tree, but were reluctant to ask.  Yes, it's vast with many aspects, but definitely understandable and, well, fun.  And, that's what we're going to do on this hike - have fun.  We'll hike to one of Joshua Tree's longest-running and most profitable mines, poking around old tailings, snooping sites where miners lived and worked, exploring the wash that led to additional smaller mines, discovering abandoned mining equipment, miner artifacts, and learning about desert plants along the way.

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.
