T.W. Lewis Foundation Support

T.W. Lewis Foundation made a gift to create the Jan and Tom Lewis Desert Portal in 2015. The Portal was part of a major garden renovation to attract families and diverse audiences for greater community impact. T.W. Lewis Foundation supports The Garden in their quest to sustain our unique natural environment for all desert life.

"The entire field trip was wonderful from start to finish. Not only were the guides great with our students but all along the trails they took the time to teach us about living in a desert region and the animals and plants that share the desert with us."
