May 22-27 and May 29 – June 3. Please plan to arrive at the campsite no earlier than 5pm and no later than 7pm on the first day of your session. Volunteers will meet at the Ryan Campground via the West Entrance of the park. The project location is a short hike away, approximately 1/2 mile through easy terrain.
LOCATION: We will camp in Joshua Tree National Park at the Ryan Campground.
Access to our campground will require vehicles with high-clearance. There are trailer and RV spaces (35′ max) available but no hookups. There will be restrooms at both the Ryan Ranch trailhead and Ryan Campground, however, there will not be potable water onsite. HistoriCorps will provide water, but please come prepared with extra water if you desire. Dogs are not permitted at this location.
WEATHER: Anticipate highs in the mid 80s and lows in the 50s. Weather conditions may be rainy, cloudy, or sunny. Volunteers are responsible for checking weather conditions before their session begins, and packing appropriately. We recommend bringing sunblock since you will be exposed to the sun throughout the course of the project. Please bring a wide-brimmed hat, long sleeves, sunglasses, and sunblock to protect against sun exposure.
ABOUT VOLUNTEERING: HistoriCorps projects are free for volunteers! HistoriCorps will provide all meals, tools, training, equipment, and a campsite. Volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to the campsite, sleeping equipment, work gloves, clothes and boots, and other personal gear.
