Join Ranger Eric on a hike to look for nocturnal wildlife, including scorpions! Click on this program title for more details.

Enjoy this evening hike as you look for and learn about the nocturnal critters of the Sonoran Desert with Ranger Eric! 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 Butterfield Trail, 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: The west end of the Staging Area off of Arena Dr., parking at the Rainbow Valley Trailhead. See park map here: https://www.maricopacountyparks.net/assets/1/6/estrella-8x114.pdf
