SOLS Takes a Hike

Put on your hiking shoes and join ASU’s School of Life Sciences (SOLS) for its 8th annual SOLS Takes a Hike event. This year is sure to be filled with family-friendly adventure of the kind that birds, snakes, and dragonflies might enjoy! This free event is open to the public and hosted at the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch in Gilbert.

Spend the morning learning about birds, insects, reptiles, and mammals as scientists from SOLS lend their expertise and guide a series of interactive hikes. Explore the geology, plant life, water resources, and urban ecology of this beautiful preserve. Enjoy more than 4.5 miles of trails that weave through 110 acres including marshlands and native riparian areas.

Be sure to bring water, sunscreen, binoculars, and a hat, and wear comfortable walking shoes. Feel free to bring your own snack and come enjoy the morning.
