• Experience the twisted and tortured landscape of an active earthquake fault system as your guide describes the geology of the area and you explore the skeleton of the earth.
• Walk between the steep walls of deep canyons created by the powerful forces of plate tectonics, water, wind, and time.
• Explore a natural palm oasis where crystal clear water bubbles up from the underground aquifer.
• Learn about the culture and lifestyle of the Cahuilla Indians and how they used the desert’s plants for food, medicine, tools, weapons, shelter, and more.
• Learn about the plants and animals of the California desert.
