We listened for toads by the pond paying particular attention to the Woodhouse Toad which sounds like a crying baby. We spotted Bullfrog tadpoles and listened to a discussion about this invasive species and its disruption of the natural circle. We learned about owls and bats. There were scorpions to illuminate and night flowers to discover. Aine spent quite a bit of time with the desert tortoise learning about its adaptations and behavior. She also was fascinated by the agave table. She spent much of the evening spotting the specimen throughout the gardens.
We left the garden with tired kiddos. Two fell asleep before we arrived home. It was an evening well spent.
