KIOSK TRAIL IMPROVEMENTS

After some planning and scheduling we have started improvements to the one tenth of a mile trail at the kiosk.
We are installing cable fencing along both sides of the trail as visitors have wandered off trail and have caused resource damage by climbing in or hanging on the branches to have their photos taken. This project should be completed by end of October.
The project could not have been possible without the guidance and support of the Kingman BLM office and the amazing volunteers from our membership or the local volunteers from the community of Meadview.

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.
