This site is built and maintained by the Friends of the Living Desert, a nonprofit organization dedicated to aiding the New Mexico Living Desert Zoo and Gardens State Park in its mission to educate the public about the land we live in, its diversities and beauties. This park would not be the outstanding place  that it is without the support of the many individuals and organizations that make it happen.
