What makes a desert a desert? Which desert had a 400 year long drought? Are deserts ever cold? These and many other questions are answered in this new Art in a Suitcase program. The special ways plants and animals adapt to desert life are also discussed. Featured animals include the kangaroo rat, diamondback rattlesnake, scorpion, roadrunner, javelina and coyote.
A desert drawing project concludes the hour.
