MARINE CORPS AIR GROUND COMBAT CENTER TWENTYNINE PALMS, Calif. - The Johnson Valley Shared Use Area will remain open to the public August 1-30, 2019, and will not be used for military training during the time period. The closure of the Shared Use Area for military use was determined to be unnecessary after the Marine Corps revised the scope of training to be conducted in August 2019. Training conducted during that time will occur within Combat Center boundaries, utilizing ranges on the installation, including land acquired through the land expansion.
The Marine Corps reminds the public to be safe and respect base boundaries when recreating near the installation. Individuals have a personal and legal responsibility to avoid trespassing on the Combat Center. The Marine Corps will continue to implement robust public outreach to ensure the public is informed of any land use plans involving the Johnson Valley Shared Use Area.
