Palm Springs Aerial Tramway Announces Summer Programs

May 22, 2017 Attraction No Comments Email Email

May 20 kicks off the summer programs of the Mt. San Jacinto Natural History Association (NHA) in partnership with the Mt. San Jacinto State Park & Wilderness (MSJSP&W).

According to NHA President Joe Migliore, “While we live in a desert, we decided to launch a new educational program series featuring a high mountain experience.”

The first program entitled “The Ten Essentials of Wilderness Travel” is led by Senior Patroller Carl Maple and includes an undisclosed hike. Advance registration is required.

Then, on May 27 and 28, “Junior Ranger Days” returns to the Mt. San Jacinto State Park. Formerly “Family Days,” these popular events led by MSJSP&W Interpreter Allison Barnes are held at the base of the Mountain Station’s walkway from 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. and include such children’s activities as “Leave No Trace” games, “Spin the Wheel” information board and “Meet & Greet” with animal pelts. Additional dates are June 24, July 29, August 12, and September 2 and 3. No advance registration is required.

Also, free Guided Nature Walks by State Park volunteers resume May 27 and continue Saturdays and Sundays through late summer. These walks feature a choice of two easy trails–the Desert View Trail, a 1½-mile beginning at 11:00 a.m. and the Long Valley Nature Trail, a ¾-mile loop beginning at 1:30 p.m. No advance registration is required.

There is no charge for any of these programs, except for regular Tramway admission.
