The Conservancy Works with the NPS on Service Projects within the Preserve

posted on August 28, 2012

The Mojave National Preserve Conservancy regularly coordinates with the National Park Service on service projects within the Mojave National Preserve. The efforts of volunteers and NPS staff in these endeavors protects the beauty of the Preserve and helps to ensure an authentic experience for park visitors. The shared work in the Mojave National Preserve builds toward the community that is essential to an enduring stewardship of this national treasure. And we have fun! Please watch the Conservancy’s web site for notice of the next work party.

The volunteers and NPS staff who participate in MNPC service projects have removed miles of abandoned barbed-wire fencing.  Taking out these abandoned fences clears yet another area of the Mojave for unobstructed exploration and eliminates the risk that deer, birds, and other wildlife might become impaled or entangled in the barbed wire.

Cleaning up private land that was donated to the National Park Service and is now legally part of the Mojave National Preserve is another task accomplished by MNPC volunteers and NPS staff in their joint efforts to restore the land.
