Due to damage from Tropical Storm Hillary, the hiking trails will have a delayed opening this season. Please stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

Join us for an inside look into how we zoo things here at The Living Desert! On this 30-minute shuttle tour, you'll get a behind-the-scenes look at several animal care service areas while your guide gives you the scoop on what it takes to care for the 600+ animals at the Zoo. You'll also hear how The Living Desert is working to preserve, protect, and restore natural desert environments here and around the world (+ how you can help!)

Tours are offered throughout the day. Stop by the Chaiken Nutrition Center on your next visit to book this zoo-nique experience!
