                                 JOSHUA TREE TRANSPLANT SUCCESS
On January 21st and 22nd we collaborated with Mohave County Road Department and Bureau of Land Management to transplant 21 Joshua trees that were being removed from a road re-alignment project. 
The trees were transported and planted in a vacated road right-of-way a few miles away. We will continue to fill the vacated area with trees and vegetation in the future. 
We would like to give a special thank you to both agencies and Friends volunteers for there hard work and planning to make this project a success.

The trees did not look well after about 2 months but as of now, November 11, 2020 they are looking as if their new home suits them.
We will continue to monitor them for several more months. 

 

KIOSK TRAIL IMPROVEMENTS

We have finished the improvements to the one tenth of a mile trail at the kiosk.
We installed cable fencing along both sides of the trail as well as "KEEP OFF THE VEGETATION" signs along the trail.
The project could not have been possible without the guidance and support of the Kingman BLM office, the amazing volunteers from our membership and the volunteers from the community of Meadview.

Permanent Study Plot No. 3




On October 24th members of our Friends group met with USGS Research Biologist and members of his staff to establish our third permanent study plot.
After a meeting to discuss the procedure and the latest research updates we proceeded to the study site.
Our goal is to create at least two permanent plots per year to gather data that will be sent to Todd and used in the Joshua Tree research projects that are ongoing.
Thank you to all of the volunteers that participated and we look forward to seeing you again at the next permanent plot setup.
