The Elyze Clifford Interpretive Center was first established in 1992 through efforts from the community, Lancaster City Council, and Elizabeth “Elyze” Clifford, an environmentalist that rallied to preserve the unique desert landscape. MOAH redesigned the space and now manages all the outreach and programming for Elyze Clifford Interpretive Center. The Center is nestled within the Prime Desert Woodland Preserve, which spans more than 120 acres with over three miles of trails. This center allows patrons to connect with plants and animals living in the Mojave Desert region. The Elyze Clifford Interpretive Center also provides educational opportunities through its immersive location that includes special nature presentations and tours, free kid’s crafts, and community events.
