Joshua Tree National Park Association works in partnership with Joshua Tree National Park to help in its achievement of programing goals in education and interpretation, along with scientific and historical research and activities.
The Joshua Tree National Park Association has been supporting programming at Joshua Tree National Park since 1962. As the park’s primary non-profit partner, we operate four visitor centers and two park stores that are often the first stop for visitors from around the world; offer a field institute with classes taught by experts in natural sciences, cultural history, the arts, and wellness; and raise funds via donations and our membership program.
JTNPA works diligently to provide Joshua Tree National Park with the funds needed for important programs and projects within the park. Some of these programs and projects include the Desert bighorn sheep monitoring program; the Desert tortoise tracking program; science research grants for post-graduate students; the Joshua Tree seed collecting initiative; and Junior Ranger program materials – just to name a few.
To support JTNPA and our mission, donate today, join the membership circle, sign up for a Desert Institute field activity, or make a purchase in person or in our online shop. Together, we can make a difference for our beloved Joshua Tree!
