Coachella Valley Wildflower Festival

Our Activities Help You Connect To The Land!

Coachella Valley Wildflower Festival is produced by Friends of the Desert Mountains, a small non-profit supporting the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument and dedicated to conservation, education, trail stewardship and research in the Coachella Valley. While we will miss gathering together in Palm Desert this year, the mix of fun activities we have planned makes the Festival even more accessible to everyone wanting to Connect To The Land in Coachella Valley.
