Saturday, March 2, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The free event has moved location and will now take place at the Palm Desert Civic Center Park in Palm Desert, located at the corner of Fred Waring and San Pablo. The festival features a variety of outdoor and educational activities for the entire family, with wildflower displays.
Attendees can participate in wildflower viewing, a 5k Fun Run, an interactive Kids’ Zone, and a climbing wall. Sign-ups will be taken at the festival for interpretive hikes to take place later in the month at the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument Visitor Center in Palm Desert.
The festival will include live music, food concessions, a beer and wine garden, vendors offering art, and other unique items for sale. FODM will also offer a variety of raffle items to raise funds to help support FODM’s work in protecting and preserving the area’s land resources.
FODM connects people to the land. With volunteer and donor support, FODM provides opportunities for valley residents and visitors alike to enjoy and sustain the rugged, natural beauty of the National Monument and Coachella Valley. Programs include guided hikes, adult and youth education, citizen science, trail maintenance, weed removal, and conservation.
