Fodor's Review

The northern tip of the Great Basin Desert is home to flora and fauna found nowhere else in the country. Located at the entrance of the society's 67-acre park, the interpretive center shares displays and more about the unique local ecology. You can also take a one-hour guided tour along a boardwalk leading through the desert.
