This Saturday, September 24th, is National Public Lands Day, a nationwide event that honors and keeps the promise of the famous depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps that left its mark throughout California.
That weather this morning in the California desert has caused widespread damage across the Coachella Valley. Not only are a number of highways now closed, roads and campgrounds in Joshua Tree National Park were left damaged, prompting closures after an estimated three inches of rain fell.
