Featured Class: Desert Wildlife and Safety
DATE: Jan. 13 & Feb. 4, 2020 TIME: 10:00 am – 11:00 am PRICE: Member: $20 | General: $27
Hear from the Arizona Herpetological Sanctuary about how to be safe with native Arizona desert animals and to respect them in our environment. The demonstration will feature many critters, including a Sonoran Desert tortoise, California king snake, Gopher snake, Western Diamondback rattlesnake and a Gila monster. By showing people these animals in a safe setting, it helps to eliminate fear of these animals and to be more compassionate towards them. The class will also get to pet and interact up close with the three nonvenomous reptiles. Limit 30. Register here.
Desert Botanical Garden’s newest art exhibition is traveling straight from Milan to bring Wild Rising by Cracking Art—an installation of more than 1,000 animal sculptures made from colorful and recyclable plastic. Visitors of all ages will be drawn to engage these vibrant creatures and to discover that plastic does not have to end up in landfills, but it can be reinvented into something eye catching and thought provoking.
