On the grounds of the visitor center is a wonderful area set aside to educate the public of all the beautiful array of plants that flourish in this area. I learn something new about the needles on a cactus. I thought it was only used to protect the plant, but in fact the needles serve to shade the plant from the sun. So many other facts you can learn here.
One of the lovely plaques reads:Stroll along this short trail and discover some plants of the Sonoran Desert. Whether they have small, leathery leaves, needle-like spines, or thick skin, all the plants you will see have adaptive characteristics needed to conserve and store water.
