This series of Friday campground talks will take you on a (meandering) journey!

"Talkabouts" are the mental equivalent of a walkabout- you start in one place, and wind up somewhere new!

Each Friday evening, we'll trek through a different topic, taking time to smell the roses and cut a path through the myths. Relax and learn something new beside one of the world's last-remaining cienegas!

  • Meet: At San Solomon Cienega overlook area (west side of the campground)
  • Bring: Something to sit on and some long sleeves in case it gets chilly

  • 14th: Flapping Facts: Things to Know About Bats
  • 21st: Winds of Change: The Secrets of Tornadoes
  • 28th: The Language of Flowers: Decoding Plant Kingdom Communications
