The Desert Living Center (DLC) is a 5-acre Conservation Garden designed to promote sustainable gardening practices within the Mojave Desert. The Garden is located within the 180-acre Las Vegas Springs Preserve, which serves as a resource center for the people of Las Vegas. The DLC demonstrates desert appropriate plantings, low water use practices and energy conservation design through display gardens, hands on exhibits, and formal plantings. Located within the garden is a desert wetland demonstration area, which is a constructed wetlands machine that funnels all grey and black water from the 180-acre preserve and reclaims it for use in the DLC toilets and gardens. The DLC is LEED Platinum Certified.
