Our next Navigators event for March will be a hike at the Hassayampa River Preserve. We will meet at the visitor center at 1pm. Our group will walk along the Palm Lake Loop trail. This will be an easier hike along a path that would be rated “easy”. 

Part of our hike will focus on identifying different butterfly species as “Citizen Science”. Mx. Jezz will be attending an online butterfly identification workshop and will be sharing what they learn with hike attendees. If you would like to attend the online workshop, please see the linked flier for the login information. You can also print out your own Butterfly ID PDFs via the following links:
