Permanent Study Plot No. 3




On October 24th members of our Friends group met with USGS Research Biologist and members of his staff to establish our third permanent study plot.
After a meeting to discuss the procedure and the latest research updates we proceeded to the study site.
Our goal is to create at least two permanent plots per year to gather data that will be sent to Todd and used in the Joshua Tree research projects that are ongoing.
Thank you to all of the volunteers that participated and we look forward to seeing you again at the next permanent plot setup.
