What is there to do?

This tour through The Living Desert will show you how language has misled everyone into thinking of the desert as a surly, outlaw landscape instead of a fragile, interesting ecosystem. You'll see remarkable plants, animals, places and natural phenomena associated with deserts and learn how The Living Desert is helping to interpret and protect them. You will also find out about one of the most unusual institutions in the United States.

There isn't a single word to describe all that The Living Desert is and does, it offers showcases of world environments linked by the notion, and sometimes misconception, of 'desert'. It's a beautiful adventure, and you'll come away knowing more.
