5th Annual Shakespeare in the Pines


Shakespeare in the Pines is an annual fundraising event that benefits the Highlands Center for Natural History’s science-based youth and adult programs throughout the year.

Laark Productions presents William Shakespeare’s gender-bending farce Twelfth Night or What You Will. Two additional evenings allow even more opportunities to join in the fun.

Presenting Sponsor ~ Lamb Cadillac

Annual Hiking Spree

Kickoff September 1, 2018
(Time TBD)

This community wide event takes place each fall and can be completed at participant’s own pace. People from all over the state come to Prescott to hike 8 out of 12 trails within the Prescott National Forest and the City of Prescott between September and December. A collector’s medallion and hiking sticks are available for purchase when completed brochures are returned to the Highlands Center. Medallions are newly designed each year to reflect some special aspect of Arizona’s natural history and have become collector’s items.
