Joshua Tree National Park (JTNP) will begin Public Scoping on the Climbing Management Plan (CMP) on January 13, 2022. The Public Scoping period will run for 45 days, ending February 27. During this planning phase JTNP is asking the public to provide comments on management actions being proposed for the CMP. This will be the last time the public will be able to comment until release of the Draft Environmental Assessment.   

For more information on the CMP and how to make comments during public scoping please visit the JTNP CMP website at: .    

JTNP CMP team will be hosting a Virtual Public Meeting on: February 8, 2022 from 6–8 pm. Information on how to access the public meeting is available on the JTNP CMP webpage   


The purpose of the CMP is to guide the management of rock-based recreation activities for the protection of cultural resources, natural resources, and wilderness character, and to support the public’s desire to enjoy the park through climbing and related activities.
