World Expedition Series #16 Expedition Mojave – Extreme Weather Series Part II

i2P AdminNews, Youth Expeditions

In May 2024, for our 16th impossible2Possible (i2P) Youth Expedition, we will continue the experiential and adventure based learning topic ‘Extreme Weather Series’ by heading to the AMAZING Mojave Desert!

The Mojave is home to the largest national park in the contiguous United States, Death Valley National Park. The traditional home of the Timbisha Shoshone for centuries, Death Valley is world renowned for its record breaking heat and is the driest place in the USA, typically receiving only 2 inches of rain per year. In 2023, this weather pattern dramatically changed and Hurricane/tropical storm Hillary devastated the park. The entire national park was closed for months due to this rare deluge of rain that dumped 2.2 inches of rain in a matter of a few hours – flash floods caused massive damage, forever altering the landscape.

The impossible2Possible Youth Ambassador Team will take on the challenge of exploring and studying the history and ever changing weather pattern of this unique desert that reaches into 4 states; Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and California, and share what they learn with classrooms all over the world!

More details to come….but this will be a mix of unsupported and supported trekking and running through wilderness, and continued educational programming, led by our i2P Education Team, from our Nov 2023 i2P Atacama Expedition .

If you are between the ages of 16-21 and would like to take part in this FREE, once in a lifetime experience – apply today! Applications will be accepted until March 31st.
