We are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the TRI Membership Program this year! As part of this celebration, we are doing special initiatives to encourage people to get the most out of Des Moines with a membership to Living History Farms, the Blank Park Zoo and the Science Center of Iowa. This effort was funded, in part, through a grant from the Iowa Tourism Office.
