From Rock to Small Talk

While people long ago shared messages by making pictures on rocks, today we have many other ways that we can communicate. One of the most important things about being a Junior Ranger is sharing information with others. The more people who know how special Joshua Tree National Park is, the more people there will be to take care of it in the future.

Please do not climb on, touch, or disturb historic structures and rock art anywhere in the park.  These actions can hurt and damage the sites. To safely see the rock art, please leave plenty of space between you and the rock.
