I thought I would take a moment to note that Joshua Tree National Park is part of the National Park's Service's Climate Friendly Parks program.
Take a look at what Joshua Tree is doing here on their website. The park's efforts provide a great example of how organizations are taking a look at their impacts on the environment and how they are developing ways to mitigate them. One way Joshua Tree is doing this is by conducting a greenhouse gas inventory and developing goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
By far their biggest challenge is transportation emission reductions within the park and I think it will be interesting to see how they do in meeting their targets. You can read their climate action plan here to get a sense of their strategies.
