I Heart My National Park: Joshua Tree... Have you ever heard the phrase “being loved to death”? This is considered by some to be the biggest threat to the future of national parks and many other public lands. As a national park, there is very little development in Joshua Tree, and so it can be preserved in a state very similar to what would have been seen when wagon trains crossed the desert. The desert is a fragile eco-system and many visitors don’t realize how easy it is to destroy vegetation as well as seriously impact the terrain itself. In 1916, when the National Park Service was created, there were a dozen national parks, all of them in the West, visited by 326,506 people. Today, 417 parks, national monuments and historic sites cover more than 84 million acres and were visited more than 330 million times last year. We encourage everyone who loves Joshua Tree National Park, to follow all park rules, explore responsibly and leave no trace. The national parks belong to all of us. We should all visit them and enjoy them. With more champions of our parks, we can love them to renewed life, instead of to death.
