Staff Report~ 9/10/2014

NORTH VALLEY – Desert Foothills Land Trust is offering ‘Focus on the Foothills,’ a program that works to share the natural history of the Sonoran Desert with the community.
The interactive four-week course begins on Sept. 20 and presents a wealth of natural, cultural, and historical knowledge which, if participants choose, prepares them for ongoing volunteer opportunities with DFLT.
Led by conservation director Vicki Preston, each session will include both classroom and trail time on DFLT preserves. Informative and entertaining experts for each course include local authors, biologists, and botanists.
Residents and fans of North Scottsdale, North Phoenix, Anthem, New River, Carefree, and Cave Creek are invited to join the program. Sessions will be held on consecutive Saturdays, 9 a.m. until approximately noon.

The $35 cost covers all course materials. Participants aged 16 or older are welcome, but space is limited, so register soon. To register, visit or call (480) 488-6131.
