Special Events

Want to know what the things are that go bump in the night, at least the little ones? 

Join us for an evening of finding and identifying some of the insects and other invertebrates that inhabit the Sonoran Desert. 

The evening includes a tour of the sanctuary and then bug attracting, collecting, and close up investigation--if you dare!

Light refreshments will be served.

This event takes place at the sanctuary at 27026 N. 156th St in Scottsdale.

Event fee is $30 for adults, $20 for children ages 3-12
