I am proud to be part of the Wildflower Festival, a yearly fundraiser for Friends of the Desert Mountains, dedicated to acquiring wild lands and working with volunteers and private and public partners, to maintain and preserve the wild resources through trail maintenance, invasive species control and trash cleanup. They also connect and educate the community by supporting the National Monument visitor center by leading hikes and offering classes and events that reveal the wonders of the desert.

Your books are wonderfully different and REFRESHING!! The recipes are a nice touch too.

- Mark Farley, Elite Land Tours, Palm Springs

Your book will be good to promote especially to tourists visiting San Diego, it gives such a great overview of the topography of the area. The history side of it is important especially since we are in Old Town.

- Karen Abbott, Old Town Trading Company

I am an artist, so Linda’s chapter on the Indian Canyons were helpful in showing me beautiful places to capture images of the desert with my camera.

- D. Sullivan, Photographer & Artist

Look at this amazing diversity!Did you know that we are living in a global biodiversity hotspot? The Coachella Valley is part of both the California Floristic Province and the Sonoran-Baja Desert Ecoregion, sits on the border between the Colorado and Mojave Deserts, and spans five different life zones, from low desert sandy washes to sub-alpine pine forests.

This 3D map of the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument spans from sea level La Quinta in the lower left to the peak of Mount San Jacinto at 10,833 feet in elevation in the upper right, and displays more than 50,000 observations of life - about 2,000 different plants and animals. Blue dots represents vertebrate animals (birds, mammals, and reptiles), red dots represent invertebrates (insects and spiders), and green dots represent plants.

The entire Coachella Valley is home to at least 3,000 different species that we know of! You can discover the diversity of life in the Coachella Valley and contribute to this map at www.iNaturalist.org.
