Arizona Sonora Desert Museum which is just a few miles from the campground. It is a natural history museum that also includes a botanical garden and small zoo.
Much of the Museum is outdoors with a 2 mile long trail that goes through 21 acres of desert landscaping that including 1,200 types of plants and 300 different species of animals, including bear, coyote, javelinas, gila monsters, etc. Unfortunately many of the animals were sleeping such as a bear we spotted and also a javelina.

At 10 and 2 o'clock there is a raptor flight demonstration. We watched four Harris Hawks performing while a ranger gave a talk on them and other flying birds of prey, that includes hawks and owls in addition to various types of hawks.
We enjoyed our time in this very interesting museum
