Remember that proposed trash dump right outside of Joshua Tree National Park? If you were around during the prehistoric early days of this site, you would — it’s one of the very first things I posted.

The on-again, off-again legal relationship still hasn’t made any progress since the last appeal, but the coalition of groups fighting to stop a giant pile of L.A.’s finest garbage from getting piled up on the doorstep of SoCal’s most accessible National Park is holding a benefit concert in Pioneertown on April 18th and 19th.

According to the Press Release:
“If you like good ole rock n’ roll or are concerned about our desert environment, join us for a fun weekend and support a good cause in Rockin’ For Joshua Tree. For more information call Donna Charpied (760) 574-1887 or email [email protected] Donations to support the legal battle can also be made. Checks should be made payable to CCAEJ, earmarked for Stop The Eagle Mountain Dump, mailed to Donna Charpied/CCAEJ PO Box 397, Desert Center, Ca. 92239. CCAEJ is a non-profit organization under IRS Section 501(c)(3). All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.”

Via National Parks Traveler, who also have some good info on the history of the legal battle to prevent this dump.
