The Living Desert Visitors Center

There are several other kiosks that discuss the Chihuahuan Desert's plants and animals as well as the history and culture of the Mescalero Apaches, who roamed this area hundreds of years ago.

We have several areas that allow guests to touch the items on the tables, such as the area in the picture to the left. Several rocks, minerals and antlers are available to touch on the table. 

Many visitor are surprised to see a shark atop an education kiosk then they enter the Visitors Center. The kiosk explains the formation of the Permian Basin and why this are has so much gas and oil.
