When it comes to surviving the summer, desert owls really have the right idea. They stay hidden away during the sweltering days, but once the sun goes down, these nocturnal creatures rise up to rule the night.
Take a cue from our wise, winged friends and experience the beauty of the nighttime desert at Desert Botanical Gardens Summer Flashlight Tours, happening every Thursday and Saturday through September. Bring your lanterns and learn about the desert critters and plants that come out to play after dark. We guarantee the slimy toads and creepy crawlies you might spot on the trails will give a new meaning to nightlife.
Thursdays, Saturdays, 7 p.m. Starts: June 30. Continues through Sept. 1, 2011
