California Desert Protection Act Treasure Hunt
November 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join us for a late-season hike to celebrate the anniversary of the California Desert Protection Act on Saturday, November 9th at the Thousand Palms Oasis Preserve in Thousand Palms, CA.
Sign up here to reserve a space and receive further information about the event. Space is limited so an RSVP is required! We will search for Leopold’s rush (Juncus acutus subsp. leopoldii), narrowleaf sandpaper plant (Petalonyx linearis), and other desert rarities while we learn about this important desert habitat. Be prepared to hike a moderate distance (2-5 miles) on potentially uneven terrain. Bring sturdy shoes, lunch, water, sun protection, and a hat.
