Family Events in the Discovery Gardens

Family Programs

The Highlands Center offers educational programs for families throughout the year regarding the natural history of the Central Highlands of Arizona. For our full list of upcoming events, please view our calendar.


Whether you find insects gross or fascinating, this festival is for you! Learn cool facts about bugs and come see our giant bug sculptures! From anatomy to life cycles, you are sure to leave with a better understanding of these often misunderstood creatures. These high flying, shape shifting arthropods of the Central Arizona Highlands will knock your socks off, or maybe spin some webs on them!
