Saguaro Fruit Harvest at Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

June 29, 2024 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am

$68 – $75

High summer is the beginning of the O’odham calendar, as this is the time to harvest saguaro fruit. Spend the morning gathering fruit in the O’odham manner, using a harvesting pole made from the ribs of the giant cactus. The class begins with a blessing and song by O’odham friends who share their family stories about the importance of the saguaro. We will learn about different ways that the fruit is prepared and preserved, and about the animals that use the saguaro for food and shelter. This class will take place entirely outdoors at a site a couple of miles from the Museum.
