The BLM Barstow Field Office and the Desert Discovery Center (DDC) are jointly hosting this year’s National Public Lands Day event. Join us for a fun activity day at the Desert Discovery Center parkland site. We will be painting shade structures and beautifying the landscape to help connect with our community’s hiking trail.
The Desert Discovery Center is a 7,000 square foot facility surrounded by 12 acres of public land located in the heart of Barstow, California. The DDC is comprised of a unique partnership between several government, educational, and non-profit organizations, originally established in 2005. The Center itself will be open during the NPLD event, for the general public to come and learn about desert safety, environmental stewardship and public lands’ recreational opportunities.
Registration for public volunteer work takes place inside the building from 7:00am – 8am that morning, with public presentations in the Center from 9:00am – noon.
