The Black Rock Lecture Series will be expanded this season to feature a panel based symposium on relevant topics affecting Joshua Tree National Park and Gateway Communities. Academic and policy experts will analyze and assess seven core aspects of challenges to Joshua Tree National Park and the Sonoran and Mojave Deserts that surround the park. This special symposium will replace the 2014-2015 Black Rock Lecture Series. The programs will run from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Bell Center at Copper Mountain College in Joshua Tree. This event is co-sponsored by Copper Mountain College.
