The Sonoran Desert silently celebrates its new year with the swelling of the saguaro's rosy fruits. Join the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum to gather and prepare saguaro fruits in the traditional O'odham. manner, using a harvesting pole made from the ribs of the giant cactus, then cooking the fruit until it thickens into a rich, sweet syrup. We will learn about other desert plants that were important food sources for native peoples and about the animals who use the saguaro for food and shelter. Includes a native foods lunch.  To register click here. June 27, 2010 from 7 AM - 1 PM
