Friday – Do you know the difference between a saguaro and a barrel cactus? How about a jumping and a teddy bear cholla? Join us for a presentation on the wonderful world of Sonoran Desert Cacti that can be found in our park and then take a 2.2-mile guided hike around Stargazer and Moonlight Trails to see them firsthand. You’ll learn how to recognize them among other vegetation when they’re young and even at the end of their life cycle when they look starkly different than when vibrant. We’ll also talk about the types of flowers they produce and when you can expect to see them during your springtime hikes. What to bring: Closed-toe shoes, water, hat, sunscreen. Meet inside the Visitor Center.
