Join Ranger Eric to look for and learn about the nocturnal critters of the Sonoran Desert! Wildlife may include scorpions, spiders, insects, owls, nightjars, reptiles, and mammals. Hiking will be an easy grade on occasionally sandy or uneven terrain and will be about 2 miles roundtrip on the Bajada and Goat Camp Trails, as time and weather allows. Please bring your own ample water and electrolytes, flashlight or headlamp, and wear sturdy footwear. A blacklight is recommended, but the ranger will have one to point out scorpions with. Restrooms are available at the trailhead.
MEETING LOCATION: Area 2, Bajada Trailhead. See park map here: https://www.maricopacountyparks.net/assets/1/6/white-tank-8x11.pdf
