Today, basic survival for most of us means regular trips to the supermarket. But imagine living in the Sonoran Desert five hundred years ago. Everything you needed came from right here. This program explores local resources with a special focus on the agaves that native peoples of the Sonoran Desert region traditionally used for food, beverage, medicines, fibers, and more. Visitors experiment with ethnobotanical materials to make their own cordage, learn about agave beverages, and so much more!

Price: Free with Museum Admission
