Tues Sept. 29, 6-8pm: California Desert National Monuments Support Party & Movie Screening

From our friends at the Mojave Desert Land Trust

Stop by the Mojave Desert Land Trust to learn about this important conservation work, watch a short film about the areas, and write a letter to help protect our beautiful and fragile California desert!

When: Tuesday, September 29, 2015 from 6-8pm

Where: Mojave Desert Land Trust Gateway Headquarters at 60124 Twentynine Palms Hwy, Joshua Tree, CA

Dear Friends,

For over seven years, a diverse group of stakeholders has worked to create the California Desert Conservation and Recreation Act. Now, we have a chance to achieve the centerpiece of that legislation by urging President Obama to create three new National Monuments representing some of the most biologically and historically important lands in the California Desert.

Join MDLT and the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) for letter writing to targeted elected officials and updates about the effort to create the Mojave Trails, Castle Mountains, and Castle Mountains. As part of the event, we will screen two new short films about these areas created by The Wildlands Conservancy.

Light snacks and beverages provided.

RSVP Required to Lesley Hughes, Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, Lesley@mojavedesertlandtrust.org, 760-366-5440
