Have you ever wondered why Organ Pipe and Saguaro cacti don't grow in all the American deserts? How is the Sonoran Desert different from the others anyway? Join us one of our free interpretive programs as we share the stories about your National Monument.
Interpretive programs are offered January, February and March. Check program postings at the Kris Eggle Visitor Center or the Twin Peaks Campground for details or check here for the week's events.
Programs are subject to change. Please check with the Kris Eggle Visitor Center (520)-387-6849 ext 7302 for more information.
These 10-20 minute presentations take place on the back patio of the Kris Eggle Visitor Center. Subjects and presenters vary.

Did You Know?
Gila Monsters are one of only two species of venomous lizards found in North America. You can find them in the late spring through early autumn at ORPI. They move really slow, and you have to try pretty hard to get bit. We don't recommend it. It hurts, and they don't let go.
