This FREE event held at our Desert Awareness Park is a perfect opportunity to learn more about our beautiful desert! Stroll through the ¼ mile trails at Desert Awareness Park and meet our education team guides along the way who share information about the plants you pass.  Learn when and how to harvest as you stand before the plant.  Gather in the interpretive center after your walk to taste foods prepared from these plants.  Trail is sandy and uneven.  Wear appropriate footwear.  Complete circuit to all the stations will take between 45-60 minutes.

You can live off the desert if you know what to pick and when. Find out as we stroll for an up-close look at the food producing plants. Discuss harvesting techniques and food preparation ideas. Taste some recipes from our recipe book “Our Tastes of the Desert”. Small guided groups will be led continuously throughout the morning and our volunteers will be on hand to share their love of the Sonoran Desert!
