Digital Exhibit Now Open! - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

 Even though the museum is temporarily closed, the popular annual “REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE“ exhibit will go on – digitally!  Local artists came together, submitted photos of their art and made it possible for the museum to announce the opening of its first digital “REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE” Exhibition.  The museum invites everyone to enjoy over fifty amazingly creative and beautiful pieces of recycling art on the Hi-Desert Nature Museum’s website at

This exhibition is meant to raise awareness about our “throw-away” society. It is a community-based effort that aims at removing litter from our desert, and in return share individuals’ innovative and often surprising use of discarded items to create fine works of art.  Enjoy perusing through the gallery and become inspired - our RRR artists never disappoint!  Be sure to take advantage of some of the exhibit features; you can enlarge and zoom in to the artwork, as well as share your favorite pieces on social media.  The Hi-Desert Nature Museum thanks all the participating artists who were willing and patient through the process, and thanks Antje Strom at Cyberspike for the web design.

For over 55 years the Hi-Desert Nature Museum has been dedicated to the process of education by exploring the natural, artistic and cultural heritage of the Morongo Basin and High Desert.  The Museum seeks to inspire wonder, discovery, understanding and responsibility in its community and visitors through exhibits, programs, and collections in the arts, history, and natural sciences.  The Hi-Desert Nature Museum is operated by the Town of Yucca Valley and is located in the Yucca Valley Community Center Complex at 57090 Twentynine Palms Highway.  For more information visit   Also on Facebook!
