Upcoming Events

It's never to early to start thinking about this fun, interactive event at the Cooper Center! Why? Because it's time to collect your mesquite pods, before the summer rains. The pods will then have all summer to dry and will be free of fungi. Collect them from the trees, store in open containers until dry, cover and place out of the weather, and by the end of the summer they will be ready for milling. Visit the Desert Harvester's website for more details on mesquite pods and collection. As for the prickly pear fruits...those will have to wait for our monsoons!
