Upcoming Events

Starting on March 9th, each cohort of prospective teachers will visit the Cooper Center as part of their Science Methods courses.  They will participate in Cooper's programs as teachers and observers, and even have a chance to be kids!  The UA cohorts will work with students from Roberts-Naylor K-8, Howell Elementary, Banks Elementary, and Gale Elementary!

The Elementary Education program is part of the University of Arizona's College of Education.

Winter rains have brought forth a multitude of spring wildflowers, and they're popping up all over the Cooper Center!  We're also seeing and hearing lots of wildlife along the trails - woodpeckers are working on their nests inside saguaro holes, phainopeplas are enjoying mistletoe berries, and javelina and deer tracks seem to be everywhere!

There is no better time to enjoy the wonders of the Sonoran Desert than right now.  I hope to see you out on the trails!
