Scorpion Scavenger Hunt! -“The County Parks are getting Wet ‘n’ Wild this Summer!” -McDowell Park
McDowell Mountain Regional Park
Scorpions are a lot more fun to find when you spot them glowing under a blacklight, scavenger-hunt style (outside, rather than in your house)! Learn all about these venomous creatures and what makes them so well-adapted to life in the Sonoran Desert. Did you know that we commonly see three different species? And that all scorpions glow-- the same color--under a black light? Bring a flashlight or a blacklight, and wear sturdy shoes. This short walk will be about a 1/2 mile in length. Meet at the Trailhead Staging Area.The County Parks are getting Wet ‘n’ Wild this Summer! “The County Parks are getting Wet ‘n’ Wild this Summer!” That means program participants will be eligible to win a 4-pak of tickets to Wet ‘n’ Wild Phoenix! 1. Tickets will be issued one per family. 2. Families can only win one set of 2013 Wet ‘n’ Wild tickets. 3. Visitors must attend the program in full and must be present to win. At the end of the program, the Interpretive Ranger will pull one winning ticket. 4. One 4-pack will be issued per program.
