“Rock Art of the Southwest”
This program, presented by Native American Naturalist David Morris, will examine the early cultures of the southwest and the rock art they left behind. Cultures such as the Hohokam, Patayan and the Ancestral Pueblos will be compared and theories about their development and disappearance will be explored. Attendees can view some examples of the rock art of these cultures and discuss possible interpretations of these ancient designs. Central Arizona College, 805 S. Idaho Rd, Rm F129. Free.

In this colorful presentation, we'll focus on birds you're likely to see in your desert backyard, and help you learn to recognize some common, and not so common, winged visitors by key markings and song. Amy will also discuss smartphone apps that can help identify 'mystery birds' in the field. Central Arizona College, 805 S. Idaho Rd, Rm F129. Free. Space limited to classroom size.
