Head out to Wickenburg for some outdoor education featuring cowboy naturalist Richard Fredrickson, of the famed Rancho de los Caballeros Guest Ranch in Wickenburg. This tour begins with a moderately difficult walk in the desert, treating nature lovers to an array of Sonoran Desert upland plant and animal species, local history, storytelling and ecology. The loop walk is approximately 1.5 miles long with minimal elevation change, but with some short sections with loose rocks and gravel. The walk is loaded with nature interpretation and hands-on demonstrations, and is followed by a lunch at the Ranch’s cowboy dining room. 

Transportation departs on February 9 from the Desert Botanical Garden at 8:30 a.m. and returns at 4 p.m. The tour is limited to 20 people. Cost is $50 for members ($65 with Garden transportation) and $62 for non-members ($77 with Garden transportation). Lunch and gratuities  are included.
