Activities and Amenities
An Asombro Scientist brings along our natural history collections to help you learn about the fascinating plants and animals of our region. This includes examining skulls, pelts, and plant samples from the Chihuahuan Desert.
We offer free drinking water and refreshments in the morning (while supplies last).
There are restroom facilities and drinking water available near the parking area on Scientist Saturdays. You can explore the park on the paved Desert Experience Mini Trail or one of our unpaved trails!
We hope to see you there!
