Join an educator at the Foxtail picnic area to learn how the animals of the Spring Mountains prepare for winter and how you can be prepared for winter as well. Please arrive 10 minutes before the start of the program. This program will take us around the Foxtail picnic area. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable hiking clothes and dress in layers. Temperatures in the Spring Mountains can be 20-30 degrees cooler than the Las Vegas valley. Please bring 1 liter of water per person.
