Please join us at Jawbone Station on September 2, 2010, at 11:00 am for a groundbreaking ceremony for the Station expansion project. Special guests will include BLM Desert District Manager Teri Raml and Friends of Jawbone co-founder and Kern County Supervisor Don Maben. On this day, the long awaited expansion of the Jawbone Station Visitors Center will leap from the drawing board on to the ground.
When the expansion is completed, the Visitors Center will enjoy more space for interpretive displays and visitor services, and a larger sales floor for books, maps and apparel. Included in the expansion will be an onsite garage and shop to properly and securely store FOJ's fleet of vehicles, OHV's and maintenance equipment.
The expansion of Jawbone Station is funded through grants from the Federal Highway Administration's Recreational Trails Program and the California Department of Parks and Recreation, Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program. The Jawbone Station Visitors Center is operated by FOJ under agreement with the Bureau of Land Management.
We look forward to seeing you at this special and happy occasion. Jawbone Station is located on Highway 14 at Jawbone Canyon Road just 20 miles north of Mojave.
