Adult Programs at The Living Desert
Living Desert University
An Adventure in Education!
Living Desert University (LDU) offers desert residents the opportunity to become skilled and inspired desert gardeners, naturalists, habitat creators, artists and valley hikers. Our goal is to offer a broad range of classes that increase environmental sensitivity and ecological action in everyday life.
Classes include landscape design, gardening, natural history, ecology, geology, arts and crafts, and our Coachella Valley Hiking program which includes the Valley Trek Series - Easy to Strenuous hikes featuring some of the most beautiful sites in and around the Coachella Valley. Professional specialists, educators, certified natural history interpreters, and The Living Desert staff teach LDU classes. While class offerings are designed primarily for general education, credits for classes are recorded for those interested in our certificate programs, Desert Backyard Habitat and the Coachella Valley Hiking certificate. We are very pleased to have the opportunity to offer these quality programs at The Living Desert!
