The Chihuahuan Desert boasts hundreds of plant species adapted to arid conditions including creosote bush, sotol, yucca, agave and lechuguilla, the desert’s signature plant. Learn about these and other species at the 507-acre Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center and Botanical Gardens, located just south of Fort Davis. Historic artifacts and ore displays highlight 19th-century mining, and a demonstration greenhouse grows 200 species of cacti and succulents. Hiking trails lead to overlooks and a canyon.
