Welcome Navigators!
We are excited for our upcoming hike on Saturday, January 28. To help us prepare for our hike we will be holding a Zoom meeting on January 23 at 6pm and also we will be welcoming any new members. The meeting will serve as a space for folks to ask questions about the hike and be sure everyone knows the safest way to prepare for our outing.

For anyone that can’t make the January events we will be holding a Social meetup at UUCP on February 13 and another hike on February 25. We hope you and your family can make it to some of our upcoming events.

Saturday, January 28, 10am at Jewel of the Creek Preserve:
Join us for an all ages family friendly hike at Jewel of the Creek Preserve. The hike will highlight plants and trees of Arizona riparian plant communities as well as classic desert flora and fauna. We will also discuss what a plant community is and the importance of conservation and diversity of our desert plant communities. Prior to our hike we will also have a brief topographic map and compass orientation to better familiarize ourselves with our terrain.
