DVNHA's 1st Death Valley Natural History Conference was held Nov 15 - 17, 2013. The proceedings of the event includes research presented by 30 different presenters.This publication was recognized at the 2017 Partnership Awards 2017 Publication of the Year with the Public Lands Alliance!
Death Valley National Park is 3.3 million acres of questions. From how many bighorn sheep there are, how geologic faults affect the amount of water in our springs, or why the rocks on the Racetrack playa move, there’s so much left to learn. As a very strong mission fulfillment item, we've combined traditional scientific journal type papers on various subjects in the context of Death Valley Natural History with the latest of modern graphic design. This beautiful 460 page full-color book includes interesting photographs and figures to capture the reader’s attention and illustrate the topics included.
We hope this conference and the publication helps quench some of the additional questions regarding the mysteries of Death Valley that the science minded individual may have. It also promotes active research in Death Valley National Park to delve into this land of extremes with further exploration.
The date for our next Science Conference is still undecided. Look for a call for papers announcement and to receive other updates be sure to add your email address to our monthly e-newsletter.
