Homeschool Happenings is a recurring program series. The Desert Outdoor Center is a fun, hands-on, inquiry based learning center that can enhance your family’s education by encouraging a curiosity about nature, working with scientific concepts, and inspiring an appreciation for the Sonoran desert.
Join us on January 29th for two programs, a Nature Hike and Aquatic Life. First we head outside and hike down the Honeymoon Cove Trail, an easy 1 mile round trip hike with up and downhill sections. Next we head inside to learn about the microscopic aquatic creatures of Lake Pleasant and observe them through microscopes! Each program is 45 minutes with a 10 minute break in between. Suggested ages 8 and up.
Limited space is available and pre-registration is required. To sign up, call us at 602-372-7470, or leave a message at 602-372-7470 Extension 206.
