Poppy Reserve/Mojave Desert Interpretive Association

Poppy Reserve Mojave Desert Interpretive Association (PR/MDIA) supports the educational projects and programs for school children and the visiting public at several State Park units. These include the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve, Saddleback Butte State Park, Tomo-Kahni State Historic Park, Arthur B. Ripley Desert Woodland State Park, and Providence Mountains State Recreation Area.

Some current projects include providing exhibit structures at the Ripley Desert Woodland SP and multiple language signs for the Poppy Reserve. Table top exhibits are being purchased for use at Tomo-Kahni and in the new Education Outreach Program. Many exciting projects are on the horizon as we look to a bright future together.

The Poppy Reserve/Mojave Desert Interpretive Association has proven itself to be an ally of parks, visitors and staff.
