This fall marks the 25th anniversary of the California Desert Protection Act (the Act), which designated Joshua Tree and Death Valley as national parks, established the Mojave National Preserve, and designated 69 wilderness areas managed in the California desert.
The Act catalyzed 25 years of desert protection measures which have brought enormous benefits to the region, including five national monuments and millions of acres of lands specifically to be used for recreation and conservation as designated under the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan.
Our goal this fall is to have 25 municipalities help celebrate 25 years of the California Desert Protection Act by passing local resolutions commemorating its achievements!
