Government Shutdown Causes Joshua Tree National Park to Close

Government Shutdown Causes Joshua Tree National Park to Close The move is due to damage from park visitors since the partial shutdown started three weeks ago.

Officials say the biggest issue is off-road driving that has affected vegetation in the area.

During the government shutdown, there have been too few rangers in the park to stop the vehicles.

Joshua Tree, via statement Officials add that closing the park to visitors will allow staff to perform necessary cleanup operations.

Anually, around four million people visit Joshua Tree, which is located east of Los Angeles and contains over 800,000 acres.
