Mount San Jacinto Natural History Association

The Mount San Jacinto Natural History Association, created in 1979 for the enjoyment, understanding and safety of those who visit the Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness. The association assists in improvement of park libraries and displays at the two state park ranger stations in Long Valley and in Idylwild. The association and park staff created the visitor center. It opened in 1986 in the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway Mountain Station. Visitor center volunteers encourage tramway riders to enter the beautiful Mount San Jacinto and introduce them to the entire California State Park System. The Natural History Association provides staffing for the visitor center 365 days a year. Volunteer naturalists conduct guides nature walks in Long Valley on weekends and during the summer.

Mount San Jacinto Natural History Association has proven itself to be a valuable asset to the visitors and staff at Mount San Jacinto State Wilderness. Join them by becoming a member!
