Learn about the nocturnal critters of the Sonoran Desert while on an evening walk with Ranger Derik! Wildlife seen on past walks have included snakes, bats, ringtails, foxes, skunks, javelinas, deer, owls, scorpions, insects, and other cool creepy crawlies! Please bring your own flashlights and blacklights if you have them. Please carry your own water and wear closed-toe shoes. Due to the wildlife we may encounter, please do not bring pets. Trails are rated as easy-moderate and are mostly flat, but there may be some small hills and rocky surfaces. We will hike about 2 miles. This program is for all ages but might not be suitable for toddlers or young children due to their perception of the darkness and hiking length.
