Four Family- Friendly Activities at McDowell Mountain Regional Park During May
McDowell Mountain Regional Park is the ideal playground to explore the beauty of the Sonoran Desert for families during May. Whether you’re looking for edge-of-your-seat adventures or something a little more low-key, here are four great activities to explore at the McDowell Mountain Regional Park:
Bird watching is a fun hobby that can be done anywhere, by people of all ages and abilities. Let us help you get started with this fun new hobby today! Bring binoculars if you have them, but if you don’t we will have a limited supply available to borrow. Meet at the Visitor Center on May 10th at 7:30 am.
Way out in the Wild
Take a walk on the wild side and learn about some of the plants and animals that call the Sonoran Desert home. This short walk (0.5-mile) will be on an ADA-accessible trail and suitable for all ages and abilities. Experience the feeling of being way out in the wild, without too much effort! Meet at the Nursery Tank Trailhead on May 17th at 8:30 am, which is approximately 5 miles from the park entrance.
Out of the House Homeschool! – Sonoran Spotlight on Skulls
Attention Homeschoolers! Get out of the house on May 24th at 10:00 am and out to the park for some hands-on learning. This week’s focus will be on identifying skulls of our desert animals. Please RSVP to email@example.com.
Feeding the reptiles at the McDowell Mountain Regional Park is no easy task. It takes a team of hardworking people. Join the staff at 11:00 am on May 26th for an afternoon break and see for yourself how our cold-blooded residents eat their monthly meals. Frozen rodent entrees will be served to the critters. Program takes place in the Visitor Center.
