With focus on inquiry-based, experiential learning, Tohono Chul’s mission is to connect visitors with the wonders of nature, art, and culture in the Sonoran Desert. We work to facilitate the integration of environmental education and life-science concepts into a multi-disciplinary curriculum. We offer a variety of tour topics to choose from.
• Number of tour participants: 5 minimum | 60 maximum
• Number of student chaperones requested: 1 adult per 10 students
• Length of tour: approximately one hour
• Topics: Lives of Desert Plants, Desert Animals and Their Habitats, Desert Birds, Ethnobotany – Edible and Useful Plants, and Pollinators and Their Plants. If our current indoor arts and culture exhibits are of special interest to your students, arrangements can be made to include them as part of your tour.
Cost – $2 per student, free admission for 1 chaperone for every 10 children, $2 for each additional chaperone.
