The Living Desert is a nice, fun thing to do outside if the weather is nice; which is almost always in the area. Nice exhibits and the gardens are interesting. It gives descriptions of the trees and plants. One thing I would like to see is how those plants are used on the signs. For instance if it is for food, water, medicine, herbs, etc. The train exhibit is one of a ind. It is an enormous electronic train that kids would love to play with but unfortunately can not. That would be a nice exhibit (even for a fee) to operate the train with one of the operators there. With that exhibit, they could really do something with it under supervision for kids, and even adults. Maybe some television screens following the trains around the track. All in all, a fun neat thing to do if you are not from the desert.
