  • “Joshua Tree: A Place in the American West”
    7:00 PM-8:00 PM
    01-10-2020-02-07-2020

    73950-74044 Cottonwood Dr, Twentynine Palms, CA 92277, USA

    “Joshua Tree: A Place in the American West”

    Event Date: Friday, January 10, 2020
    Event Time: 7:00PM

    Event Description: The West is both a real geographical space and a set of ideas. Mountains, prairies, nomadic Indian tribes, and isolated Anglo farmers all appear in our national memory alongside trains, cattle, and flecks of gold. Western national parks often protect dramatic landscapes that include pieces of that story. At Joshua Tree National Park, the creation of the park, the orientation of its preservation efforts and the stories that are shared with visitors are intimately connected to both the realities of the American West and the mythologies that have captured national imagination. Cane West will help us explore some of the key connections between this desert region and the national park today.

    Cane West is a hybrid park ranger and professional historian. A 7-year veteran of the National Park Service, Mr. West interprets nature-focused parks from the perspective of human use and management through time. Mr. West is also a PhD-Candidate in American Environmental History at the University of South Carolina. He has been published in leading national academic journals, but his principle mark of success is having visitors from around the country laugh at his bad jokes during park tours.

    Studying the Impacts of Climate Change in Joshua Tree National Park

    Event Date: Friday January 17, 2020
    Event Time: 7:00PM – 8:30PM

    Event Description: The popular Black Rock Symposium will continue on Friday, January 17, 2020, to feature a panel-based symposium on relevant topics affecting Joshua Tree National Park and Gateway Communities. The first event of this symposium series will be “Shifting Landscapes: Studying the Impacts of Climate Change in Joshua Tree National Park”. In the region surrounding Joshua Tree National Park (JTNP), which straddles the Colorado and Mojave Deserts in southern California, previous research has predicted the widespread demise of its namesake iconic species, the Joshua tree (Yucca brevifolia). These climate change predictions point to hotter, drier deserts, which may be a challenge for even drought-adapted species. “We have a range of scenarios,” said Lynn Sweet, a UC Riverside plant ecologist and the lead author on the study. “If there’s global action on climate change, we might preserve the habitat. And if not, we might see it disappear.” The panelists of this program will be Dr. Lynn Sweet, UC Riverside, Chris Clarke, National Parks Conservation Association and Neil Frakes, Vegetation Chief, 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, January 17, 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.
