Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum: Tucson Mountain Botany Hike

There are so many cool plants to see and learn about on the west side of town.

As we study the shrubs, trees, cacti and hopefully annual wildflowers, we will talk about their strategies for desert dwelling. Each of the three scheduled outings will begin at a different trailhead, so you can choose your favorite terrain and trail when you register. All will be about 2 miles roundtrip. We are limiting the group size to only nine participants per hike.

$30 Museum members / $33 Non-members
8:00 to 11:30 a.m.
