Tucson has been extra beautiful the last few days, and that might have you wanting to spend sometime outside.

But, if you're the cautious type, Saguaro National Park West has you covered. This afternoon at 2:15 p.m., the park will lead a 45 minute Sonoran Secrets to Desert Survival walk, which will help "identify the most common hazards the desert, uncover survival strategies of native plants and animals, and acquire practical tips to ensure your safety while exploring the Sonoran Desert."

So grab some water, head down to the park, and when you're survival study section is all done do some exploring on your own.
