Arthropods are awesome! But what are they? They’re bugs, spiders, and scorpions. Join Arizona Sonora Desert Museum docent* Bob Elder for a presentation that will examine arthropods and the strategies the little critters have developed for survival.
Around 65 percent of all living species of plants and animals in the world are arthropods.  They are an incredibly diverse group of animals that has developed an astounding variety of ways of making a living.  Nowhere is this diversity of life histories more evident than in the Sonoran Desert.
*What’s a docent? A docent is a trained volunteer whose responsibility is to act as a guide and engage visitors at museums, art galleries, or zoos. Docents are adults of all ages, walks of life, and educational backgrounds. There are currently over 200 docents volunteering once per week at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.
