Living Desert University

Just because you’re ‘all grown up’ doesn’t mean you’re too old for some wild education at the zoo!

Living Desert University
Adult Education
Classes/ workshops /trips

Through LDU we are pleased to offer adults the chance to learn more about our desert biome.
We have Garden & Home tours and nature themed walks to some of the Coachella Valley’s most interesting locations—including several outings to the world-renowned Smoke Tree Ranch.
Again, this season, everyone is invited to attend some of the specially selected classes we conduct to train our staff and volunteers!

And, if you’ve got a ‘bit of wanderlust’, you can always check out Travel with The Living Desert and join one of our Carpool Caravan Salton Sea Birding trips, an African Safari – or keep an eye out for a Spring Motorcoach Tour!

Please download our catalog available October 4th and view our complete listings!
