Arizona Game & Fish wildlife biologists helped launch one of the most innovative and popular watchable wildlife programs drawing families to Boyce Thompson Arboretum: summertime “Learn Your Lizards” walks. There will be two more walks, taking place Sept. 8 and 29 from 8-10 a.m.
Attend a tour guided by Casa Grande outdoor educator Phil Rakoci to learn why some little reptiles have azure abs. Boyce Thompson Arboretum is an ideal place to observe native reptiles such as Tree, Side-blotched and Greater Earless Lizards while learning about their behavior and Sonoran Desert adaptations.
