The Mojave Desert Land Trust (MDLT) is a non-profit 501(3)(c) organization, founded in 2006. Our mission is to protect the ecosystems of the California Desert and their scenic and cultural resource values. MDLT's service area spans 24.5 million acres - the entire California portion of the eastern Mojave and Colorado Deserts. Our work ensures preservation and stewardship of ecologically sensitive desert lands and habitats in tandem with creating ways for people to experience and enjoy these extraordinary landscapes. We focus on acquiring and protecting properties within national parks and preserves, wilderness areas, areas of critical environmental concern, and wildlife linkage corridors. We have successfully conserved land in Joshua Tree National Park, Mojave National Preserve, Mojave Trails National Monument, and Death Valley National Park. MDLT has donated more tracts of land to the National Park system nationwide than any other non-profit since 2006. The California Desert is full of amazing opportunities for creative conservation strategies, and the need is great, as pressures on these landscapes are increasing, too.
