Event Details

Join the Desert Tortoise Adoption Coordinator from Arizona Game and Fish.  Meet a live tortoise and learn how you can welcome one to your yard.  Please note that only Arizona residents are able to adopt. This program will review the adoption process, general tortoise care, and will allow time for Q&A. 

 2022 adoption applications are currently being accepted.

Special added attraction: Ask A Master Gardener will preview immediately after the Q&A.  This new series will happen on the 2nd Saturday of each month, starting September 10th.
