Bring the whole family on this fun hunt for those elusive creepy crawlers! Don’t worry Mom, it is a “no touch policy.” We will be looking for all three types of scorpions that make their home in the park. Bring a flashlight, and a black light, if you have one. The ranger will have some black lights to loan out too. Come learn about scorpions and see how many you can spot! Hike is short and will last about an hour. Hike meets at the Wild Burro Day Use Area Trailhead, just follow the in-park “Hike” signs to the trailhead.
