McDowell Sonoran Conservancy Summer Lecture Series – Desert Hacks and Facts
June 5 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Desert Hacks & Facts is a potpourri of skills, techniques, tricks and facts that make a walk in the desert enjoyable, interesting and survivable. Want to enjoy that hike in the desert a bit more? Want answers to questions such as: How do I find my direction when my GPS and cell phone don’t work? Can I really start a campfire with a Pepsi can? How do I know what type of animal track I am looking at? What is a glochid? How does a saguaro thrive? Where can I find pierogi? This 60-minute stomp through unusual desert trivia will prepare you to fake being a desert denizen and impress your family when they visit from Minnesota or maybe Wisconsin or even Chicago.
Presented by Len Marcisz, Legacy Steward, McDowell Sonoran Conservancy and Former President and Chairman of the Board of the Arizona Historical Society.
