There are many ways the desert can be hazardous to your health. As the thermometer rises with the coming summer, it is good to be reminded about the dangers.
Please join us for May’s Wednesday Hardscrabble program at 6:30 p.m. on May 15 at Bullion Plaza Cultural Center and Museum, 150 N. Plaza Cir., in Miami, for “A Dozen Ways to Die in the Desert.”
Leonard J. Marcisz tells us unusual ways in which people end up 10 toes in the air in the middle of the Sonoran Desert.
This presentation is meant to provide an entertaining education as to how to deal with situations that involve bears, rattlesnakes, Gila monsters, scorpions, mountain lions, Africanized bees, lightning, heat, extreme cold, base jumpers, loaded weapons, lynch mobs and the occasional hostile cactus.
Survival tips are included.
Wednesday Hardscrabble programs are hosted jointly by the Gila County Historical Museum in Globe and Bullion Plaza Cultural Center and Museum in Miami.
Programs are always free.
