Mojave Desert Land Trust has acquired 80 acres of privately held land inside Joshua Tree National Park that it intends to transfer to the national park. The parcel, which sits at an elevation of about 3,600 feet, has panoramic views and is covered with creosote, cacti, saltbush, and ephedra. It is about one mile from Pinkham Canyon Road near the southern boundary of the park. To date, Mojave Desert Land Trust has acquired 115 parcels of land totaling nearly 7,800 acres; about 75 percent of those parcels have been conveyed to Joshua Tree National Park. There are still 192 privately-owned parcels within Joshua Tree National Park. Mojave Desert Land Trust will hold a new volunteer orientation tomorrow, Saturday, July 14, from 2 to 4 p.m. Volunteers will learn about the land trust’s mission and outreach, find out about different volunteering opportunities, and receive a tour of the headquarters building. The land trust is located on the highway in Joshua Tree, across from the cemetery.
