"Adopt an Animal" in Coachella Valley

About this Event The unique wildlife of the Coachella Valley, from tiny lizards swimming through the sand, to high-climbing bighorn sheep, to the roadrunners in our backyards, are part of what make the Coachella Valley an amazing place to live. You can ensure that the beautiful desert oasis, and the unique critters and wildflowers who live here, continues to thrive for all to enjoy by Adopting a Desert Critter!

Your monthly contribution will help acquire and preserve land, fund community science research projects, remove non-native invasive plant species, maintain and build recreational trails, and provide educational programs for all ages. Thank you for choosing to Adopt a Desert Critter! Choose your favorite critter and make a symbolic adoption today. [They also are open to donations of any size!]
