MDLT’s SPRING BACKYARD BBQ EVENT

Saturday, April 8, 2017
10AM – 2PM

Gather Around Our (Dormant) Backyard Firepit 

Amboy Crater may not be lit, but this open house sure will be! Join us for MDLT's Open House on April 8 from 10am to 2pm in our big backyard at Amboy Crater, an extinct cinder cone in the Mojave Trails National Monument. We will be joined by the Girl Scouts of the San Gorgonio Council to unveil their Mojave Monuments Patch. With their winter Sand to Snow excursion already under their belts, the Scouts will earn their second of three bars towards the patch after spending a fabulous day in Mojave Trails. Not only will our picnic have crafts and snacks, but we will also have our friends over to chat about ants, volcanoes, wildlife, wildflowers, and maps. And what backyard picnic would be complete without chocolate lava cake?

Parking for this event will be limited so we would like to encourage you to carpool. Spending time at Amboy Crater is a magical experience, but your enjoyment might be compromised if you do not come well prepared. Please bring a sunhat, sunblock, sunglasses, and wear sturdy walking shoes to explore the crater. 

  • BBQ lunch including pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw and cornbread served by Brunce's Kitchen
  • Lava Cake served by Logan's Crazy Cakes
  • Interactive stations with crafts and information including: ants, volcanoes, wildlife, flowers, and monument maps and activity!
  • Limted Seats Available on MDLT's Shuttle Service from our HQ to Amboy Crater
  • More event details to come shortly, so stay tuned!
