In conjunction with the Hi-Desert Nature Museum’s temporary exhibition, “Cold-Blooded in the Mojave,” museum biologist Stefanie Ritter will present a curator lecture as part of the Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series. Our desert is teeming with plant and animal life that has adapted to the harsh environment, and reptiles are almost everywhere. We share our desert with these fascinating creatures but we often overlook them, and many of us know very little about them. Join Stefanie Ritter as she gives an entertaining talk about the world of reptiles, sharing fun facts and dispelling myths about these amazing cold-blooded animals. This presentation will be held on Thursday, June 28, starting at noon; admission is free and iced tea will be served. The Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series is held every second and fourth Thursday, June through August.

For more than 45 years the Hi-Desert Nature Museum has been dedicated to the process of education by exploring the natural, artistic and cultural heritage of the Morongo Basin and High Desert. The Museum seeks to inspire wonder, discovery, understanding, and responsibility in its community and visitors through exhibits, programs, and collections in the arts, history, and natural sciences. The Hi-Desert Nature Museum is located in the Yucca Valley Community Center Complex at 57116 Twentynine Palms Highway. The Museum is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Admission is free; donations support the educational mission of the Museum.
