For Teachers

From the geology of the sand dunes to desert ecology among the Joshua trees and the history of westward expansion, Mojave National Preserve provides opportunities for adventure and learning for your students. Find teacher guides, ranger classroom visit info, a field trip planning guide and more as you use Mojave as your classroom.

If you are located in Barstow or Victor Valley, California, schedule a trip to the Desert Discovery Center, an environmental education center in Barstow where students participate in immersive, hands-on experiences without the travel time of a field trip to the preserve. Check out courses at the Zzyzx Desert Studies Center for your own professional development.
