Living Desert Botanical Gardens Tips (1)

The Living Desert Botanical Gardens

Much of the effort of The Living Desert is to impress upon visitors the value of desert habitat. Along the walk that visits the zoo, there are a number of garden spots with desert botanicals, some of these are irrigated as the Coachella Valley is drier than some other deserts in North America, at least, but many are also excellent native specimens. The world's largest "G" size model railroad is also located here.
