National Parks Store: A Walk in the Desert


Share on Facebook


Why do jackrabbits have long ears? Why are a mountain lion’s forepaws larger than their hind paws? Why do cacti do their photosynthesis at night and have spines instead of leaves? Are you interested in this place where we live?  Do you ever wonder why the grooves on the south side of Saguaros are deeper and narrower than those on the north side? Join local historian, Jack Lasseter, for an engaging discussion that will bring the desert alive for you.

Whether you are new to the desert or have lived here all your life, this presentation will forever change how you see the Sonoran Desert. You will walk away saying, “Wow, I didn’t know that.”

Presentation at 2 PM Only.
