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 Living Desert University we are pleased to offer adults the chance to learn more about our desert biome.

We have nature themed walks, including luncheon, to one of the Coachella Valley’s most interesting locations—the world renowned Smoke Tree Ranch.

Returning this season, everyone is invited to attend many of the classes we conduct to train our staff, focused on the plants and animals found at The Living Desert!

And, if you’ve got a ‘bit of wanderlust’, you can always join one of our Carpool Caravan Salton Sea Birding trips in January.

Space is limited, so reserve your adventure in learning today!

Please download our 2018-2019 Catalog for a complete list of our offerings.

Call 760-346-5694 ext. 2501 or email for more information.
