Flower Friday
Looking for a way to bring the Sonoran Desert into your home this holiday season? Consider decorating your own agave stalk! Looking for natural ornaments? Use fishing line to hang seedpods from devil's claw, screwbean mesquite, Mexican buckeye and yucca. Bonus: This plant takes up less floor space and doesn't leave a pine needle pile. Please remember to always get permission before harvesting the stalks. Dig Deeper!

We would like to congratulate our volunteers of the month for December: Linda Gregonis and Susie Lutgen! Linda is a long time Saturday docent and bird lover. She regularly gives the Bird Walk to our guests. Susie is an incredible support to our administrative offices. Her organization skills and warm personality are invaluable.  We could not do what we do without them. Thank you for being such a great addition to the family.
