Palm Springs is where the stars come to play - and now, it’s your turn! Your adventure in our desert paradise continues with Zoo Day at The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens. Set amidst the Colorado Desert and tucked against the Santa Rosa Mountains, The Living Desert welcomes guests of all ages to learn about and appreciate the world’s desert plants and animals through informative habitats, botanical gardens, hiking trails, and interactive activities.
2020 marks the Zoo’s 50th anniversary, so you can be sure we will be throwing a party to remember.
On Zoo Day, join us for exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences and open houses, take a guided tour through our botanical gardens or even take a hike on our nature trails.

Zoo Day guests can feed a giraffe, discover our Winged Wonders: Butterfly and Hummingbird Pavilion, feed a camel, ride the carousel, and experience the 500 animals that call The Living Desert home. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about our conservation projects, business operations, and future expansion plans.
The desert hospitality continues as we kick-off happy hour with a cactus crawl around the zoo, featuring fun libations, snacks and more. Then the party really gets started in our new Living Legacy Garden where you’ll join your friends and colleagues for an incredible dinner provided by Service Systems Associates. Live entertainment, fun activities and a dance party will round out your party in our desert oasis.
The party wraps up at 10:00 pm with the buses making stops at the Convention Center and three hotels. Buses will depart beginning at 1:00 pm from the Convention Center and will run continuously throughout the evening. The last bus will depart The Living Desert at 10:15 pm.
