The Death Valley ’49ers is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that seeks to expand public awareness of Death Valley. The aim of the Death Valley ’49ers is to foster appreciation of Death Valley as a rare desert environment having unique natural and cultural histories, which played an important role in the settlement of the west and the addition of California to the Union.

Special recognition is given to the California bound pioneer wagon parties of 1849-50. Their indomitable will to survive and persevere through the ordeal of that winter serves as an enduring example of the hardy spirit of all Americans who traveled far searching for new and better lives. The Death Valley ’49ers sponsor the Annual Encampment each November to celebrate this pioneer spirit and this special place called Death Valley.
