Desert Survivors is an affiliation of desert lovers committed to experiencing, sharing and protecting desert wilderness wherever we find it. We recognize the places we love to explore will not remain wild unless we give others the opportunity to experience them as we do and unless we remain vigilant and active in our efforts to monitor and preserve them.

     CONCERNS OF THESE TIMES   

Considering the dangers of the Coronavirus epidemic and our interest in the well-being of Desert Survivors members, the board of directors has decided to suspend remaining Spring 2020 trips and events, and put plans for future group activities on hiatus.  We have also postponed our membership renewal campaign. 

When the welfare of all becomes more certain, and people can safely get together in groups, Desert Survivors will resume its program of desert excursions and related events. We cannot wait to get back out there. 

All current Desert Survivors will remain members in good-standing past April 2020.  They will qualify to take part in all activities once our hiatus is lifted. 

We thank you for your understanding during this crisis.  Good health, and happy deserts to all.

Installing a vehicle barrier in Joshua Tree National Park.  Desert Survivors volunteers pose before fence posts they planted in Berdoo Canyon during a January 2020 service trip.  Travel on Berdoo Canyon Road is legal, but off-highway-vehicle drivers will often break the law by traveling into the wilderness-designated side canyon that leads to the right in this photo.  Shortly after this picture was taken National Park personnel strung steel cable through the posts completing the barrier. Desert Survivors volunteers work to protect our deserts as wilderness.  Become a member and join us in our conservation endeavors.                                    Photo: Katy Myer
