Thousand Palms Oasis consists of 880 acres continguous with the 38,000 acres of other conserved areas that are collectively known as the Coachella Valley Preserve System. The Center for Natural Lands Management owns the Thousand Palms Oasis Preserve.
CNLM protects and manages Preserves in California and Washington State. All Preserves provide refuge for endangered or threatened species or protect rare and sensitive habitat. Each Preserve is assigned to a specific member of the CNLM stewardship staff with expertise in the species or habitat type.
Ginny Short is our Preserve Manager. She joined CNLM in 2007 with over 10 years experience in biological monitoring, habitat restoration, and geographical statiscal analysis.
Most of CNLM’s 82 Preserves are too vulnerable to allow public access. Thousand Palms Oasis Preserve is one of 16 with public trails. (cnlm.org)
