Self-Guided Tour of the Desert Research Learning Center

Trail on DRLC grounds
The tour winds around the west end of the main building and around to the north.

This 13-stop, self-guided tour of the DRLC grounds can be accessed by smartphone or computer. Tour stops include an artificial tinaja and flowing stream, a heritage orchard, a pollinator garden, and a variety of native plants and foods, all sustained by a rainwater collection system.

At each stop, learn how you can use your home environment to benefit native plants and animals—and even save on your water bill. Some actions are simple; others require more commitment. But all will help us to live better and longer on the land.

The tour begins at the tortoise habitat just outside the main entrance to the DRLC, then winds to the west and around the north end of the building.
