You are invited on a walking tour of the oasis to experience firsthand its geology and natural history.
You meet in the library where Pat Flanagan, our naturalist, begins with aerial images and maps to
locate us (we are visible from space) before strolling the grounds to learn about the palm oasis and
desert plants and animals. The history of the Serrano and Chemehuevi Indians who lived here, the
pond and garden are all part of the story.
Who: Guests of the 29 Palms Inn; visitors in the area; and community members
When: Saturday & Sunday (occasionally Pat is out of town so be sure to check the schedule at the
