Stop by the Nature Center to learn about desert arthropods and see cool specimens up close. This same session is also offered on Friday, August 26.
Have fun with this indoor drop-in discovery station that is all about our desert’s six- and eight-legged critters! Learn about cool characteristics and survival strategies of arthropods such as spiders, scorpions, beetles and butterflies, and in particular the County Parks Eco-Blitz species of the month – the striped-tail scorpion! You can investigate real specimens, complete an insect activity packet, make a take-home craft and take a self-guided exploration walk around the nature center grounds. Meet inside the Nature Center.
