Mojave River Natural History Association

The association expands educational and interpretive functions within Silverwood Lake State Recreational Area and is a way for park visitors and members of the surrounding communities to become more actively involved in the activities and services at Silverwood Lake.

Various activities to further educational and interpretive goals include recruitment, docent training and volunteer staffing of the Visitor Center. The volunteers also assist in the development of displays and may help with special events as bald eagle counts, barge tours, trail work, nature walks, campfire programs, scout programs and overnight outings for kids that may never have a chance to visit a State Park.

The association also provides a budget to assist the State Park staff in purchasing interpretive equipment and supplies.

Mojave River Natural History Association has proven itself to be a valuable ally to the parks, visitors and staff at the Silverwood Lake State Recreational Area. Join them by becoming a member!
