Join the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum for a unique experience where participants will gather and prepare saguaro fruits in the traditional O’odham manner, using a harvesting pole made from the ribs of the giant cactus. You will then cook the fruit until it thickens into a rich, sweet syrup.
Participants will also learn about other desert plants that were important food sources for native peoples and about the animals who use the saguaro for food and shelter.
Cost of the class includes a native foods lunch.
