The Women of Quail Creek will meet at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, August 31 in the ballroom. The program for the evening will be Bites, Stings and Scratches with naturalist Jeff Babson. In his presentation Jeff will investigate the plants and animals in the Sonoran Desert that protect themselves in ways that are extremely unpopular with humans. The women will learn all about the well-fortified flora and fauna that share the desert with us—-bees, scorpions, rattlesnakes, poison ivy and many others. As Jeff describes them, they are the desert dwellers that make us say, “Ouch!”
An all-around naturalist, Jeff is the owner of Sky Island Tours, an environmental education and eco-tour company. He has led birding tours for Pima County Department of Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Tucson Botanical Gardens and several birding festivals in southern Arizona. He has also taught classes on butterflies, moths, dragonflies and beetles. He lives in Vail with his wife and two children.
