The Shaw D. Kinsley Lecture Series Presents: Jack Lasseter “The Sonoran Desert, This Place Where We Live”
Time & Location
About the Event
Want to learn more about this beautiful and unique place we call home? Come and hear why jackrabbits have such long ears, why mountain lions’ forepaws are larger than their hind paws, why the cacti do their photosynthesis at night and have spines instead of leaves like other green plants, why the grooves on the south side of Saguaros are deeper and narrower than those on the north side, why barrels are called the “compass cactus,” what the role of nurse trees is in the desert’s story, and much more about its flora and fauna. Let all of these things bring the desert alive for you and change forever how you see it. Whether you are new to the desert, or have lived here all your life, you will go away saying “Wow, I didn’t know that.”
Snacks will be served. $15 per lecture. A portion of the proceeds supports our education and preservation programs.
