Sunday Afternoon Fun in the Preserve
Scottsdale, Arizona – If you would like to experience a FREE Sunday afternoon learning adventure with your family, you can take advantage of the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy’s free talks in Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve. At Family Sonoran Sunday events, you can enjoy expert speakers on various Sonoran Desert topics, and interact with crawling, slithering, feathered, or cuddly friends that speakers sometimes bring along. The talks take place in shaded amphitheaters with bench seating at the Gateway Trailhead Amphitheater and the Brown’s Ranch Trailhead Amphitheater. They occur at 3 p.m. on most of the first and third Sundays during the cooler months and last for 45 minutes to one hour. If time permits, you can take a leisurely walk along the nearby accessible, interpretive trails before or after the talk. If the opportunity arises, you can introduce your visiting friends and relatives to a unique desert experience.
