One of the programs Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) teach is, “Strike It Rich,” in which elementary students pan for garnets. The program focuses on geology; students learn how the Santa Catalina Mountains were formed and the minerals that are in them. The minerals are easily identifiable in the sands near the creek, making panning a fun and exciting activity.

    The Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists have stopped all group activities for children and adults in Sabino Canyon. We look forward to when we will again be working with the public. Meanwhile, Sabino Canyon remains open to all who are interested in spending time in our beautiful recreation area. — kenne
