The Joshua Tree National Park Association is the non-profit partner to the park.  We operate the visitor centers, assist with park projects, and support the Desert Institute, which is the educational division of the association, offering a full schedule of weekend classes through the fall and spring seasons.

The park received over 2.6 million visitors in 2016 and are experiencing increased visitation in 2017.

The JTNPA is seeking written proposals and samples from local vendors for night sky postcards that meet our Scope of Sales requirements (link here). Postcards should contain a brief education message and be a standard 4” x 6”.
