Have you ever wanted to learn more about the natural world? The Highlands Center offers Natural History Classes throughout the year on a wide range of topics related to nature in Arizona and beyond. Instructors are carefully selected and classes are designed to provide in-depth educational experiences for participants, often incorporating hands-on lab or field components.
