Miles For MDLT!

Get out and enjoy the desert while actively protecting it! This March, you can turn your regular hikes into a fundraiser that supports the Mojave Desert Land Trust. It’s easy. Share your hiking plan with friends and family and ask them to donate to the Mojave Desert Land Trust. You will be helping to protect precious desert resources so that future generations can enjoy the land.

Since 2006, the Mojave Desert Land Trust has secured permanent protection for almost 90,000 acres across the California desert -- land that is home to the iconic Joshua tree and federally threatened desert tortoise. But the fragile California desert is facing threats from many corners:  overdevelopment, climate change, and fire. Will you help us do this vital work? Join our Miles for MDLT campaign. Every mile you hike can help us buy and permanently protect another acre of this unique desert.  

How You Can Help


Our goal is to raise $20,000 by March 31, 2021. 

You can help us today by making a donation or you can choose to set a personal miles goal for yourself and reach out to your friends and family to make donations that motivate you to reach your goal. Click on Create a Fundraising Page to start the process and you can expect to receive all the resources needed to get you started - including a personal fundraiser page that has already been created for you.

All fundraising participants will receive a Miles For MDLT sticker and patch at the campaign’s conclusion. The patch will include the year so you can collect a new patch every year you participate!
