Description

Please join the College of Liberal Arts for the University Forum Lecture "Silent Films to Silent Springs: The History, Ecology and Stories of the East Mojave Desert, a talk by David Lamfrom, California desert senior program manager, National Parks Conservation Association

Millions of acres of pristine wilderness, rugged mountains, hidden springs, remnants of ancient peoples and an astonishing Joshua tree forest lie just south of Las Vegas. It is an area where members of the Hollywood elite sought refuge, where gold made and broke miners’ lives, and where wildlife thrives. Join us on a virtual journey along the historic Mojave Trail, through scenic areas of Nevada and California to sacred Native American sites, ghost towns and untouched natural areas.
