Interactions are an essential part of our presentations and will be a part of each one.
Learn about some of our native Arizona wildlife in this hands-on demonstration.
This program gives students the opportunity to learn about our native species in the safety and comfort of their own classroom! In this demonstration, students will learn what to do if they ever see or hear a rattlesnake in the wild, why Gila monsters are such amazing animals, why desert tortoises are protected animals, and how to tell if a snake is venomous or non-venomous. We explore various methods of staying safe in our desert environment as well. Please note that this demonstration does include live venomous animals, but that they are kept in locked display cases at all times. We believe these animals can help teach valuable information and therefore we incorporate them into our education programs with the utmost safety. Animals used for interactions are non-venomous and are proven education animals.
