  SoLS Takes a Hike
  ASU School of Life Sciences' faculty and students will put aside their microscopes and lecture notes to lead guided hikes for the community in Tres Rios Wetlands. Located west of downtown Phoenix, just off 91st Avenue and close to the confluence of the Gila, Aqua Fria and Salt rivers, the wetland reserve is a haven for birdwatchers, plant lovers, and folks just looking for a cool break from the heat. This event is free and open to the public. This year's hike organizers Pierre Deviche, a birding expert, and Susanne Neuer, an oceanographer, will just be two of more than a dozen ecologists, geologists and field biologists, who lead four short nature walks looping through the park. Besides these guided tours for families, reptile expert Andy Holycross will attend with his snakes, to talk about snake safety, as well as their beauty. Holycross is the coauthor of "A Field Guide to Amphibians and Reptiles in Arizona," with co-author Thomas Brennan, recently released by Arizona Game and Fish. So if you are curious about wetlands or just looking for shared fun with the family, a Tres Rios tour with ASU experts is the place to be. For more information about the hike contact: 480-727-8934 or
