Join partners and community members from the Morongo Valley, Coachella Valley, and Desert Hot Springs for a day of service at Big Morongo Hills in the Sand to Snow National Monument. The day will begin with a visit to the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve in Morongo Valley to celebrate the 1st Anniversary of the Sand to Snow National Monument designation. Then we will travel to the other side of the mountains to Desert Hot Springs’ Big Morongo Hills. Activities will include an area clean up, trim repair, and habitat restoration.
The City of Desert Hot Springs recently passed a resolution expressing its intent to be a gateway city to Sand to Snow National Monument, and is excited to being work with the community and agency partners to improve and restore access into the monument with local hiking trails.
Snacks and water will be provided, but volunteers are strongly encouraged to bring their own additional food and extra water.
