All About Scorpions & Scorpion Hunt

  • Usery Mountain Regional Park 3939 North Usery Pass Road Mesa, AZ, 85207 United States (map)

How dangerous are scorpions? How can we protect ourselves from them? How do they survive and thrive in our desert? Discover the answer to these questions and more in this exciting one-hour presentation! Join us inside our Nature Center as Ranger B shares amazing facts about these desert dwellers. As a bonus, watch us feed our snakes after the program at 7:30pm. Then join our “Scorpion Hunt” at 8pm at no extra cost!

NOTE: At the end of the program, one lucky person will win a free family four pack (4 free tickets to the Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Phoenix Water Park – a $180 value!!).

Did you know that scorpions glow in the dark under a blacklight? Join Ranger B as he leads us on this fun and safe night walk along a trail to find these elusive desert dwellers (using our eyes only). You will sharpen your spotting skills and have a lot of fun at the same time! All ages will enjoy this casual one-hour/one-mile walk. Please wear closed-toe shoes and bring water and a blacklight (blacklights are for sale while supplies last). No pets, please.

Location: Trailhead Staging. As a bonus, join our “All About Scorpions” program inside our Nature Center at 6:30pm and our snake feeding at 7:30pm at no extra cost!
