Head out Wickenburg way for this popular seasonal outing featuring cowboy naturalist Richard Fredrickson of the famed Rancho de los Caballeros guest ranch in Wickenburg. This tour begins with a moderately difficult walk in the desert, treating nature lovers to a fabulous array of Sonoran Desert upland plant and animal species, local history, storytelling and ecology. The walk is loaded with nature interpretation and hands-on demonstrations, followed by a delicious lunch at the ranch's historic cowboy-inspired dining room. This loop walk is approximately one and a half miles long with minimal elevation change but does have some short sections of loose rocks and gravel. Participants should wear sturdy footwear. Lunch is included. Transportation from the Garden departs promptly at 7:30 a.m. and returns at 4 p.m. For those self-driving to the program, please arrive at Rancho de los Caballeros lodge by 9:15 a.m.
