Thursday – If you love nature and want to learn how to see the desert as more than just a beautiful landscape, be sure to join us for a short classroom presentation followed by a guided walk and talk that focuses on adaptations, life cycles and the special relationships between our desert plants and animals. How do plants survive with very little rainfall? What happens when they don’t survive? Animals can benefit from plants that are alive as well as those that are decaying. We’ll examine various specimens along the trail and see firsthand the importance of our desert plants at all stages of life. Please bring water, hat, sunscreen and closed-toe shoes. Meet in the Nature Center. 9:30-11am.
