To support Mojave Desert Land Trust’s land conservation, education, and day-to-day financial needs with consistent and broad-based funds.

California Desert Vision
It is the year 2030. The California Desert is a vital ecosystem of interconnected, permanently protected scenic and natural areas that host a diversity of native plants and wildlife. Views and vistas are broad. The air is clear, the water clean, and the night skies dark. Cities and military facilities are compact and separated by large natural areas.
Local residents, visitors, land managers, and political leaders value the unique environment in which they live and work. They understand the natural processes and cultural resources of the California Desert as well the impacts of global climate change upon the Desert ecosystem and collaborate on land use and management activities that allow for adaptation under changing climactic conditions and protect the California Desert for future generations.
