After a summer of fun, the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum will offer two more events in their Cool Summer Nights series. These themed Saturday night events offer interactive experiences for the whole family. Make sure you check out the last two events of the season!
August 27th is Teacher Appreciation Night. To celebrate the start of the new school year, teachers will be admitted for free with valid ID. Families are encouraged to stop by to learn more about Arizona’s Sonora Desert and it’s stunning biology, geology and astronomy. Guests can expect mineral and rock activities, live animal presentations and a very special guest, Mayor Jonathan Rothschild. The Mayor and local teachers will showcase the Tucson Schoolyard BioBlitz Program, as well as Meet the Neighbors: the Biodiversity Nextdoor, an animal presentation. Children will love the Nature at Night Demonstration, featuring nocturnal animals, night-blooming plants, fluorescent minerals and more!
The September 3rd event, the final one of the season, is themed Pollinator Night, with a focus on bats. The event aims to celebrate these misunderstood and underappreciated animals, and their role in the Sonoran Desert. Children will enjoy seeing bats up close and live.
