Park Newspaper Archive

The official park newspaper and trip planner, the Joshua Tree Guide, was redesigned in 2015. We now publish three issues per year: winter/spring (February-May), summer (June-September), and fall/winter (October-January). Past issues are archived here as PDFs for you to view or download.
