JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK, Twentynine Palms, California –

JOSAR is recruiting new volunteer members. No prior training or experience is required. Joshua Tree Search and Rescue provides extensive training in land searching, tracking, incident management and high-angle rope rescue techniques. You may participate as a rescue member, field searcher or in a support capacity for team operations and logistics.

If you enjoy teamwork, helping others, and the beauty of Joshua Tree National Park, there will be a brief informational meeting Friday, February 5th from 7-9pm, at the park's Black Rock Visitor Center, 9800 Black Rock Canyon, Yucca Valley, CA 92284. (take Joshua Lane South from Hwy 62, Yucca Valley) We will discuss the many opportunities, requirements and time commitment for each level of participation.

Women and men, 18 years of age or older, who are comfortable with heights, are physically fit, and comfortable working around injured people, are encouraged to apply. For more information, please email Dylan Moe at Dylan_Moe@nps.gov or David Pylman at 714-747-5057.
