Phoenix Zoo – Desert Lives Trail
One of the most scenic paths in the Phoenix Zoo leads to a desert exhibit, home to the Arabian Oryx and Desert Bighorn Sheep. To draw visitors to the experience and constant surprise of desert living, the “Desert Lives” trail was created. This path contrasts and compares the stories of the natural habitats of these two desert species through the use of interpretive stations incorporated into natural earthen walls. The interpretive signage program provides punctuation to the exhibit while complementing the natural feel of this scenic trail.
