Are you interested in more than birds? The Sonoran Desert is home to a variety of amazing creatures and this trip will offer the opportunity to go herping with Larry “The Lizard Guy” Jones, author of Venomous Animals of the United States and Canada, and Jim Rorabaugh, co-author of A Field Guide to the Amphibians and Reptiles of Sonora, Mexico. We’ll look for Desert Iguanas and a variety of other desert lizards while walking the Sendero Esperanza Trail in Saguaro NP and on the way back we’ll stop to look for Collared Lizards and other rock dwellers. Gilded Flickers, Purple Martins, and other Sonoran Desert birds won’t be ignored! Limited to 9 participants.
