Discover amazing things about desert rocks and plants!  We’ll collect rock and plant samples and then with a digital microscope project our magnified samples on the big screen inside our Nature Center classroom.  We’ll explore the important part each thing plays in a desert environment!  Pack a lunch to eat at one of our picnic sites following the program.  You can then enjoy some time exploring the park on your own!  Note: Suggested for ages 7-12 with an adult.  Please wear closed-toe shoes for the outdoor portion of the program.  NO registration - just show up and have some fun!  Location:  Nature Center.
