JTNP was originally declared a national monument in 1936, and only became a national park in 1994, thanks to the California Desert Protection Act.
For thousands of years, the Chemehuevi, Serrano, and Cahuilla tribes regularly lived the high desert, canyons, and caves.
Joshua trees are technically stemless succulents, not trees! The tallest Joshua Tree in the park is about 43 feet high in Queen Valley forest and is estimated to be around 960 years old.
