Three Upcoming Field Trips: 1. Sabino Canyon (28 August), 2. Pajarito Mountains (7-9 August), and 3. Rancho El Aribabi, Sonora (31 August-2 September). Sabino Canyon – we will gather at the canyon during the morning to look for lizards, tortoises, amphibians, and diurnal snakes, then disperse and reconvene for an evening walk up the canyon with flashlights.  Pajaritos – it will also feature day and night searching, but most people may choose to camp, or in the event of questionable weather, stay at a hotel in Nogales or Tubac. Contact Larry Jones, for more info and to reserve a spot for these two field trips. The Rancho El Aribabi trip will be led by Jim Rorabaugh,  Contact him to reserve a spot. Check out the attached field trip flyer, too!
