About Joshua Tree National Park
Established in 1994, Joshua Tree National Park’s nearly 800,000 acres boast a fascinating variety of plants and animals that live where two distinct ecosystems of the Colorado Desert and the Mojave Desert meet. Sculpted by strong winds and occasional torrents of rain, dark night skies, a rich cultural history and surreal geologic features of twisted rock add to the wonder of this vast wilderness in Southern California.
About the Joshua Tree National Park Poster
The Joshua Tree National Park Poster measures 13″ x 19″ and is an original work by Robert Decker. The poster is based on a photograph he took that highlights the surreal geological features and the iconic Joshua Tree for which the park is named. Created in the style of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) of the 1930s and 1940s, posters are printed on “Conservation,” a 100% recycled, domestically produced (80 lb.) paper stock with soy-based inks. From start to finish, each poster is 100% American Made.

About the Artist
Photographer and graphic artist Rob Decker studied photography with Ansel Adams in Yosemite National Park during the summer of 1979. The experience solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all 59 major national parks as we celebrate the next 100 years of the National Park Service.
“I feel that it’s important to protect America’s special places, and to connect people with nature. And it’s up to all of us to pitch in. Perhaps more importantly, we need to inspire the next generation of park stewards. I’m trying to make a difference by giving back to the amazing organizations that support our National Parks. I donate 10% of annual profits, so when you buy one of these original works, you’re helping these trusts, conservancies and associations, too.”
