Adventure - The Southwest

Education and fun through the exploration of history, nature, science and other topics with visits to popular Southwest attractions and landmarks through our Discovering Southern Arizona program.  If you prefer to cover fewer miles than those offered in vehicle study tours, a hike, nature walk, or trail ride is a pleasant way to experience the beauty. 

Most of the van tours leave from Community Campus parking lot and include:

  • A cooler to stow your lunch
  • Entrance fees to museums/monuments and other
  • Transportation
  • An expert tour leader

Come Prepared: Wear appropriate hiking boots for all hikes, good hiking shoes/boots for van tours (may include walking and optional short hikes). Some van tours and all hikes do include walking on uneven surfaces. Wear layers of clothing, sun protection and bring water, snacks and lunch.

Other Adventure Activities: While you are building an appreciation for the Southwest, learn the language, improve your desert photography skills, calm yourself with soothing sounds of a Native American flute and prepare authentic tamales!
