The program is designed not only to make them aware of the unique nature of this priceless treasure as a habitat for wildlife, but the importance of this system as an intricate strand in the web of ecosystems on this planet. It is here today, but its very existence is threatened!
After this unique opportunity to explore and better understand the desert, perhaps your class will be the one which will make a difference in the future!
It is recommended that you arrange your own curriculum units which deal with ecosystems, biomes, habitats and the desert to coincide with this program so that you can maximize the opportunity. The Desert Reach program is only offered during the months of January through April of each school year.
