Join Allan Schoenherr, Ph.D. and author of A Natural History of California, to learn about the desert environment and the unique plants and animals that define Joshua Tree National Park during this two-day field class. Presentations, illustrations and inter-active demonstrations will explain the relationships between living organisms as well as adaptations that allow life to survive in arid landscapes. The class will visit multiple sites in the park where the two major ecosystems, the Mojave and Colorado Deserts, will be discussed. The class will also have opportunities to identify wildflowers, birds, and other animals in the field. Schoenherr makes ecology approachable and fun; just bring your lunch, water, and hat and learn about the fascinating flora and fauna of Joshua Tree National Park! This course earns 2 units through U.C. Riverside, Extension
