World Oceans Night - Water is one of the most precious resources in the Sonoran Desert, which includes the Gulf of California - also known as the Sea of Cortez. Enjoy complimentary sustainable seafood tastings from Fini’s Landing, Hotel Congress, Maynards, Penca, Primo at Starr Pass, and Rojo Hospitality. You can also learn about the incredible biodiversity of this marine environment and how to protect it with Biosphere 2, CEDO, Desert Dolphins, Marine Awareness and Conservation Society, The Dive Shop, The Fin Foundation, and the University of Arizona. Please wear blue in honor of World Oceans Day!

Beat the Arizona heat and enjoy a family-friendly outing during the Desert Museum’s popular Cool Summer Nights. So what makes these Saturday evenings so enchanting? The stunning sunsets, skies speckled with stars, night-blooming plants, and animals reappearing from their daytime naps. The desert comes alive at night as nocturnal animals awake. Bats perform aerial acrobatics in pursuit of dinner, beavers splash around in their pond, and scorpions glow green under black light. Bring your flashlight and explore, experience a live animal encounter, or participate in special nightly activities.

All Cool Summer Nights are from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Regular admission rates apply. Members enjoy the evening for free.
