I am attributing this post to my friend Julie who told me about this place - sadly, we haven't been.... yet!

The Wetlands Park is located at Tropicana & Broadbent (right by the Silver Bowl).

OK - this is Julie's idea too, but I loooveeedd it! Get a playgroup together and have a scavenger hunt! Make a quick list of items like: rock shaped like heart, barrel cactus, quail, butterfly - you get the idea. Give each group a digital camera to take a quick snapshot of the things they find. Guess what?? After a few trips, you can get pretty specific about the types of cactus they have to find or species of birds... again that sneaky education ;-)

During the summer, I am thinking the best time to go would be early in the morning before it gets too hot. The information center is open from 9am to 3pm.
