Friends, we have great news! Our new and improved online store is now OPEN! While our Visitor Centers remain closed for the time being, we are taking steps to get back to "normal", and ALL our merchandise is now available at https://www.joshuatreeshop.org/
We are kicking off our Virtual Re-opening with a special offer - a collectible Deneen Pottery mug and a tin Joshua Tree Candle Company candle for only $28.00 plus tax and shipping.
This special helps support JTNPA, Joshua Tree National Park, AND our friends at Joshua Tree Candle Company, a local small business who has been impacted by COVID-19.
We are SO excited to be getting back into the swing of things - and to get back to our mission of helping Joshua Tree National Park. You can too when you shop, save, and support!

Acting out of the utmost caution for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors, we have come to the difficult decision to cancel Desert Institute classes. We will reassess future classes during this time period.
Our Mission: Joshua Tree National Park Association is a private, non-profit Cooperating Association working in partnership with Joshua Tree National Park to help in its achievement of programming goals in education, interpretation, scientific and historic 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!
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.
