Living Desert Zoo and Gardens State Park will celebrate Holidays with the Animals on Saturday, December 9th from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. in the Visitor Center. There will be face painting for children and they will make holiday cards and treats for their favorite Living Desert animals. At 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00 p.m., a docent will read Christmas stories to the children. As a special treat, a woman representing a literacy project will be here to give away free age-appropriate books to families, including both fiction and nonfiction.
There is no fee for any of the activities in the Visitor Center, but regular admission fees will apply for those wishing to enter the zoo to watch the animals with their treats. For more information, call the park at (575) 887- 5516.
