Join us on Wednesday, January 9th for the nature lecture Kokoweef: Still Searching for the Lost River of Gold with Kim Stringfellow, Executive Director of The Mojave Project. We’ll delve into the fascinating saga revolving around a mythical Mojave Desert gold strike of epic proportions still actively sought by an eclectic and persistent group of speculators. The lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m. in The Learning Center (TLC). This program is presented in partnership with the Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park.
