Palm Canyon in the Park

It has been a long time since I’ve blogged here; I’ve been busy with docent class at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. I’ve also continued my docent activities at Tohono Chul Park. In the future I will be blogging about both places, as well as local and far-flung birding venues.

It is winter in the desert now. We have had two light freezes, but for the most part the temperatures have been warm during the day—in the sixties and seventies. The weather service is predicting the possibility of record-breaking temps next week in the eighties! At night it’s usually in the forties but warms up quickly when the sun comes up.

I mentioned in an earlier post that Tohono Chul is changing the entrance to feature plantings from a Palm Canyon, a habitat in the Baja portion of the Sonoran Desert. They have finished and it looks great.
