Life Along the Gila (Registration Required, Limit 20 Participants) – Animals – Events

Get up early and join Ranger Kevin for an informative hike about the history and significance of this desert river. Click program title for more details.

The Gila River has a storied past, a very tenuous present, and perhaps a hopeful future. We’ll discuss the importance of rivers like the Gila to the health and diversity of desert life as we explore the riparian habitat for interesting plants and animals. The trail is approximately 2 miles and rated as moderately difficult, with stretches of loose rock, deep and sandy soil, and large rocks and other obstacles. Please wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and bring plenty of water. Hats and sunscreen are also highly recommended. Restrooms and water are available at the Nature Center. NO pets, please.

Please note: Summer programs may be canceled on short notice due to severe weather, including extreme heat events. The MC Parks website is the best resource for verifying the program’s current status, so please check the program listing prior to departing for your scheduled program.

MEETING LOCATION: Nature Center parking lot. From there, we will caravan to the Plant Research Trailhead.

Limit 20 participants. To register, please call the Nature Center at (602) 506-2930 ext. 6. If you find you cannot attend a program after you have registered, please call the Nature Center ASAP so we may contact those on the waiting list. Registration for this program will close on 7/11.
