Last week, Joshua Tree National Park met with officials from Galapagos National Park to discuss links between our parks, as well as the goals and challenges that we both face.
As sister parks, we shared ideas about how to manage our lands efficiently and sustainably. Galapagos National Park discussed with us their education program's success in printing publications on recycled materials, cardboard, and marine algae. We shared with them our research efforts towards studying the effects of climate change on the park's vegetation.
Looking ahead, we hope to continue exchanging ideas about how to best overcome our challenges, while providing an educational opportunity for our visitors through the sister parks program.
