Artists: Larry and Nancy Cherry Eifert of Port Townsend, WA

Location: 73484 29 Palms Hwy. at Desert Queen Avenue (Bucklin Park, 29 Palms Visitor Center)
The original nature mural (#4) painted on this wall in 1995 was a community favorite, but over the years the harsh desert sun faded the colors beyond repair. So in 2006, nature artists Larry and Nancy Cherry Eifert returned to paint a new ecology lesson of Mojave Desert flora and fauna on the 13-foot by 86-foot wall. This time, they featured the wildlife of the beautiful 49 Palms Oasis, located in Joshua Tree National Park, a short hike from the Twentynine Palms city limits. All of the desert critters and flora featured in the mural are identified along the bottom panel of the mural.
