As our ongoing relationship to protect and preserve Joshua Tree and the Mojave Desert deepens, we will always let you know when you can lend a helping hand. Currently they are in the process of acquiring Juniper Canyon and any donation is welcomed. Please read more about how you can donate and how this land purchase will make the canyon pristine for people to enjoy and visit for a lifetime.
From the MDLT:
Acquiring Juniper Canyon has been one of our goals since I started at MDLT. It would complete our board's wishlist of original properties they aimed to acquire, knit together essential local wildlife corridors, and protect land around Joshua Tree National Park.
Tomorrow -- with your help -- we are going to raise the remaining $11,000 we need to protect Juniper Canyon.
We have lots of fun events planned at our HQ tomorrow to celebrate Give BIG, including a tour of MDLT HQ, a tour of our Nursery & Seed Bank, a special Mappy Hour about wildlife corridors, and a screening of the award-winning documentary SEED: The Untold Story.
If you can't make it to Joshua Tree, we have plenty of prizes for you to win when you donate. Every hour that someone donates at MDLT enters us for the chance to win more funds from Give BIG San Bernardino County -- and each hour you donate enters you in the pool for one of our great prizes. Share our Give BIG Facebook posts throughout the day and tag 5 of your friends challenging them to donate to be entered 5 more times for the raffle in that prize pool.
