Joshua Tree National Park, as well as many other parks across the country, has experienced a notable increase in visitation in recent years. With that increase also means an increase of graffiti and acts of intentional vandalism within the park. Park Superintendent David Smith says that while 99 percent of the park’s visitors respect and appreciate the pristine scenery, there are, unfortunately, visitors who feel it necessary to damage what Mother Nature has produced. To help Joshua Tree National Park monitor and mitigate graffiti, a new email address—firstname.lastname@example.org—has been created for visitors to send reports of graffiti and vandalism in the park. Forms to report graffiti and vandalism are also available at park visitor centers and entrance stations. When reporting graffiti, please provide a detailed description of the location. Photos and GPS coordinates are also helpful.
