EXPEDITION DAYS 2022/2023

Home|Expedition Days


The McDowell Sonoran Conservancy is happy to welcome third and fourth grade students and teachers to our expanded Expedition Days. We have three exciting STEAM program offerings. Each program supports Arizona state curriculum standards-based, interactive learning, both inside and outside the classroom.

Whether you choose to register for our two-hour interactive “Expedition Days Live” experience, participate in our “Expedition Days Online” or let us bring our one-hour “Expedition Days on the Road” to your classroom, students will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for their place in our Sonoran Desert. You may choose one or all three options. Thanks to our generous sponsors, they are all offered free of charge!
