Palm Desert’s very own Living Desert offers unique events and activities year-round for members and visitors. A couple of fun events will be taking place over the next two weekends:

Easter “Eggstravaganza” | Saturday, March 31st from 9 AM to Noon - This year’s event features a park-wide scavenger hunt. Guests can redeem their completed scavenger hunt map for an Easter egg with a special prize. Guests can also win prizes, such as behind-the-scenes tours or even a family membership. In addition, the entire family can enjoy games and activities including a maze, crafts, face painting, keeper chats, animal encounters, and the Wildlife Wonders Show. Children can have their photo taken with the Easter Bunny, along with his friends or take their photo amongst 10,000 eggs. There will also be a rematch of the Tortoise and Hare race when The Living Desert’s Easter bunny takes on the Zoo’s tortoise mascot. Eggstravaganza is free for members and included with paid admission to the park for non-members. Parking is always free.
