Benefits of Membership to The Living Desert!

Summer Memberships

Make The Living Desert a daily part of your vacation fun this June 1st to September 30th, 2017, with a summer membership! Summer hours and memberships offer a great opportunity for visitors to take advantage of the extra hour in the early morning when wildlife is most active. Before the heat of the day, many animals can be seen stretching, eating, and playing in the cooler morning temps.
