The Reality of Our Changing Climate and How it Affects Our Wildlife
Hotter summers, drier grasslands, more frequent and more intense fires. We are experiencing a change in our climate that is threatening our homes, our lifestyles, and importantly our wildlife and wildlands. Allen Monroe, President and CEO of The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens will detail these changes, but will also share reasons why we should be hopeful. We must, we can, and we will combat climate change – together!
Living Desert University
Just because you’re ‘all grown up’ doesn’t mean you’re too old for some wild education at the zoo! 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.
Open to the public; however, space is limited. Fees apply.
