Did you know that Joshua Tree is a National Park because of the plants? No, it's not because of the rocks, although the rocks do make the landscape more dramatic. In 1936, Joshua Tree was designated a National Monument thanks to the hard work of conservationist Minerva Hoyt, who recognized that the fragile and beautiful desert ecosystem was something special that needing protecting. In 1994, Joshua Tree was given National Park status by the federal government.
