    Desert Discovery Family Day

    Far from deserted, our deserts are full of plant and animal life. From bees and snakes, to bighorn sheep and blooming cacti, see how plants and animals adapt to the heat, how they avoid it, and why they mainly come out at night. We’ll provide crafts and activities to learn all about this amazing habitat.
