The Mystery of the Mojave Desert

Michael Ellis, Naturalist

During the last Ice Age roughly 15,000 years ago, rather than a desert, the Mojave was a region full of huge freshwater lakes. As the climate changed, the Mojave dried into the arid region we now know as the Mojave Desert. The lakes evaporated into huge inland salty seas, we know as the salt flats. Renown naturalist, Michael Ellis will explain the unusual ecosystem that produces one of the most beautiful deserts on earth, including “the most fantastic scenery this side of Jupiter”. Through photos, we’ll explore the heart and beauty of the Mojave’s vast canyons, eerie Joshua Tree forests, rugged mountains, volcanic craters, roadrunners, desert tortoises, chuckawallas, coyotes and abundant desert wildflowers.
