Joshua Tree National Park is offering ranger programs for the remainder of the summer: evening campfire programs, hikes, talks on the patios, and a desert story time for children. Evening campfire programs are held at Jumbo Rocks Amphitheater in Jumbo Rocks Campground Friday and Saturday nights at 8:30. Thursdays at 9 a.m., join a ranger for a 90-minute hike on the Barker Dam Trail. Saturdays at 9 a.m., join a ranger for a 60-minute hike on the Skull Rock Trail. Both hikes leave from the parking areas for the respective trails. On Saturdays at 2 p.m., meet at the Joshua Tree Visitor Center for 30 minutes for Story Time with a Ranger. A ranger will read a desert children’s book and have desert items to share. Sundays at 10 a.m. join a ranger for a talk on the back patio at the Oasis of Mara Visitor Center about various topics related to the park. All programs are open to the public and free of charge. There is an entrance fee to the park and other passes are also available. Visitors are reminded to carry water and food when visiting the park as there are no amenities inside the park.
