Our Mission: Joshua Tree National Park Association works in partnership with Joshua Tree National Park to help in its achievement of programming 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 center 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, and the arts; and raise funds via donations and our membership program. Join us and make the most of your Joshua Tree experience!
Whatever your passion, you’ll learn more about Joshua Tree National Park at our visitor center park stores. Wildflower identification, climbing and hiking guides, birding, geology, stargazing, native plants, and local history are just a few of the topics included in our great selection of books. And don’t forget the kids: we have games, activity books, everyone’s favorite desert animals, and Junior Ranger gear. Start your journey now at our online shop!
Pick up a trail guide in the park store, or sign up for a Desert Institute field class and make the park your classroom. If you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, a customized special program will ensure a perfect fit!
Joshua Tree National Park has inspired artists and musicians for more than 75 years. We’re continuing the tradition by celebrating the arts with our Artist-in-Residence program.
Your purchase in our visitor center park stores or your ongoing membership in the Joshua Tree National Park Association allows us to continue to support vital park projects and programs as well as providing visitor services. Thank you!
