March 24, 2018 2:00 p.m.
The Sonoran Desert of southern Arizona is a special place, and extremely unique when compared to other regions of the world. Every spring, the desert comes alive with new growth, flowers, fruit, and that brilliant display of colors, that sets this magical and unforgettable place apart from the rest. Listen to presenter Jack Lasseter enhance that experience for you by sharing what to look for as the desert emerges from its winter sleep. You will hear about flowers, fruit, cactus, local birds and other desert animals; and most importantly you will develop a new appreciation for the desert and the natural world surrounding it. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served. $15 per lecture. A portion of the proceeds supports our education and preservation programs. Please call for reservations, 520-398-2252.
