      Geology and Cultural History of Cottonwood Spring Fall 2019

      Stretch your legs and enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Cottonwood Mountains with Ted Reeves, in this all-day field class.  Reeves will discuss the geologic history of Joshua Tree National Park, and the rocks and plants of the Cottonwood Mountains.   We will also discuss some human history of the Cottonwood Spring area during the late 1800s.  Participants will walk six miles through the rolling hills of the Colorado Desert to see mills, mines, and more.  Along the trail, Reeves will share the adaptations of plants and animals to the desert environment.  A portion of the walk will follow a prominent freight road built in the 1880s.  Attendees will learn what is known about the road’s creation and use. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn how geology is connected to cultural history at Cottonwood Spring!
