Bird watchers – and nature lovers – are invited to bring their binoculars and come to Arizona State University’s Deer Valley Rock Art Center on three Wednesday mornings in November for guided Desert Birds Tours.

Docent Jo Brookshier will lead the 9 a.m. tours, which are an hour long, on Nov. 3, 10 and 17. She will talk about the Sonoran Desert birds that make the Rock Art Center’s nature preserve their home.

Admission is $6.50 for adults; $3.50 for seniors; and $2.50 for children.

For reservations, call (623) 582-8007.

The Deer Valley Rock Art Center has the largest concentration of Native American petroglyphs in the Phoenix Valley. Visitors hike a 1/4-mile trail to view more than 1,500 petroglyphs made between 500 and 7,000 years ago. The museum aims to promote preservation, connection and respect for the site and is a destination for families to learn about archaeology in their own backyard.

The Center is managed by one of the top archaeology programs in the country at Arizona State University and is a Phoenix Point of Pride. The address is 3711 W. Deer Valley Road, two blocks west of 35th Avenue. For more information, go to
