We are the nocturnal animals of the desert and we like to hide. Help Ranger B find us if you can!
If you would like to learn about us and enjoy a night walk in the desert, then join Ranger B as he takes you on a 1-mile, 1-hour walk along the Merkle Trail. The Merkle Trail offers universal access and the hard, smooth surface will accommodate wheelchairs and strollers. Please bring water, a flashlight, and closed-toe shoes. No pets, please.
Join the “All About Ants” program inside the Nature Center at 6 p.m., and a snake feeding at 7 p.m. for no extra cost.
