11:45 a.m. Walk – Those Mysterious Holes – Discovering the Abundant Life of ABDSP 1 Hour
Join State Park Volunteer Naturalist Terry Hunefeld to do some detective sleuthing on a slow, easy nature walk around the Visitor Center gardens to discover what species of animals may have created those little holes along the trail. Along the way we’ll examine different species of desert plants “up-close-and-personal” to find out how Native Americans used them and how they survive intense summer heat. Meet in front of the Visitor Center. Limited to 10 participants who must have pre-registered at the Visitor Center.
