Guidelines for Schools and Groups
Thank you for your interest in bringing your class to Lake Mead Alan Bible Visitor Center. It is important to check-in with the volunteer staff upon your arrival. If you are coming with more than one class, because the exhibit room is small, we recommend that one class tour the cactus gardens and perimeter trail, while the other class experiences the exhibits inside. For the safety of all students and other visitors, please review the following guidelines with your students before they get off the bus:
• Stay on the concrete pathway when walking around the cactus gardens. There are no ropes or barriers around the cactus. One type of cactus, the teddybear cholla, can attach itself to anyone who attempts to touch it. It has barbed tips that are very painful to remove from the skin.
Bathrooms and a water fountain are available. There is no picnic area on location. When visiting during warmer months, we recommend that students wear a hat and use sunblock and drink plenty of water while they are outside. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Lake Mead Alan Visitor Center at 702-293-8990.
