EVENT: Camp Iron Mountain Tour

On November 15th, CalWild, the Bureau of Land Management (Needles Field Office), and Mojave Desert Land Trust will provide an interpretive tour of Camp Iron Mountain, a World War II training camp for U.S. troops. Attendees will learn about the history of Camp Iron Mountain and the other desert training camps in the California desert as well as what life was like for the soldiers at the camp.

A caravan will leave Mojave Desert Land Trust in Joshua Tree at 9:00 a.m. and return at approximately 3:00 p.m. A high clearance 4×4 is necessary to tour the camp. Transportation will be provided (for those who do not have an appropriate vehicle) for a limited number of people.

If you are interested in attending, RSVP by emailing or calling Linda Castro at or (760) 221-4895. The number of attendees will be limited, so if you would like to attend, do not wait to RSVP.
