Ash Meadows Visitor Center Open House

Discovery awaits at the new Ash Meadows Visitor Center. This brand new state of the art facility offers visitors a chance to discover all the wildlife and wonder of the largest remaining oasis in the Mojave Desert. Home to at least 26 species of plants and animals that can only be found here, Ash Meadows is a biodiversity hot-spot located right next to Death Valley National Park, one of the hottest and driest places on Earth!

Join us March 7 as we celebrate the new visitor center and all the amazing wildlife that can be found here.
