Moose Anderson Days

Moose Days 2011

The Friends of Jawbone would like to the thank all those who participated in making the 15th Annual Moose Anderson Days a terrific success.  It was a great time with lots of great people.  Each year, Moose Days seems to get better and better and we can’t wait to do this again next year!

The cleanup project was productive and well attended.  Participants were happy to see the desert was relatively clean and while there was not as much trash to clean up as there had been in the past, it was a great opportunity to give back to the desert.  This project also served as a reminder of the importance of preserving the desert’s cleanliness and beauty.

Who is Moose Anderson?

Mark "Moose" Anderson, the person for whom our annual event was named, loved motorcycle riding in the Jawbone Canyon area and served as a governor appointed Commissioner on the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Commission.  

As a college graduate with a degree in Natural Resource Planning, Mark was just the person to work toward the unification of the off-road vehicle industry and the education of government agencies.  He had been racing motocross since age 15, and had a unique understanding of the issues facing OHV enthusiasts and the BLM.
