Joshua Tree NP superintendent: We’ll need to make cuts since shutdown cost $1M in lost entrance fees

Joshua Tree National Park missed out on collecting more than $1 million in entrance fees during the partial federal government shutdown, the park’s leader said Wednesday.

In an interview on WBUR’s On Point, Joshua Tree Superintendent David Smith said the holiday season, which coincided with the shutdown, is a busy time for the park due to its warm Southern California climate, meaning it would have been a key time to bring in revenue from park fees.
