Distance learning activity: Show us what you love about Our Desert!

We’re committed to attaining and maintaining healthful air quality while supporting strong and sustainable economic growth.

The Mojave Desert Air Basin encompasses the High Desert of San Bernardino County stretching from the top of the Cajon Pass to the Nevada border, north to Trona and south to the Palo Verde Valley in Riverside County including the city of Blythe.

The Mojave Desert Air Basin enjoys some of the clearest air in the state. But with its proximity to the South Coast Air Basin — which produces some of the worst air quality in all of California — our need to be vigilant in protecting our desert air is ever-growing.

OurDesertAir.com is intended to be a one-stop resource center for individuals who live, work and play within the geographical Mojave Desert Air Quality Management District. When you need to learn and know about air quality in our desert, check here first.

Please use the resources provided here as needed, and please let us know if there’s information you want but can’t find. Email us at info@ourdesertair.com.
