Sunset Walk at Spur Cross

Come join us on a casual stroll along the Metate Trail and watch the sun set over the hills of the conservation area. Twilight is an ideal time for wildlife watching so bring some binoculars or a camera. This is an easy hike. Please wear sturdy shoes (closed-toe), dress appropriately for the weather and bring more water than you think you will need.

Life along the Creek

Join Ranger Kevin as we look at the plants and animals that live in the riparian area along a perennial stretch of Cave Creek. The hike will take us through the Jewel of the Creek Preserve and along the lower Dragonfly Trail for a distance of approximately 1.5 miles. (moderate)

Venomous? Poisonous? What’s the difference and what does it mean to you? Everything and nothing at all! Wait… what? Join the Ranger in the Nature Center to find out just what you need to know about these cool and creepy critters. Boy, are you going to be surprised!
