Sure we see saguaros just about every day, but how much do we really know about these majestic, green-armed creatures? This Saturday, July 9th, go check out the Ha:San Bak Saguaro Harvest Celebration at La Posta Quemada Ranch facility in Colossal Cave Mountain Park! Learn more about the saguaro fruit summer harvest with saguaro facts and hands-on workshops, including Tohono O'odham basket-weaving. Also, check out the critter displays, the saguaro syrup at the Desert Spoon Cafe, and the Tohono O'odham Rain Dancers. Admission is $5/car (up to six people). This event runs twice on Saturday July 9 from 7 to 11 a.m. and from 4 to 9 p.m. The park is located at 16721 E. Old Spanish Trail. For more information, call 647-7121 or visit their website.
