The Saguaro Story

Doris Evans

Doris Evans

Back for her fourth appearance at the SaddleBrooke Nature Club, Doris Evans presented The Saguaro Story; the life history of the saguaro and its role in our environment with an emphasis on birds.

Doris is an annual favorite at SaddleBrooke Nature Club. She speaks to a standing-room-only crowd. Her previous topics have been The Roadrunner Family, Mountain Lions and Exploring the Desert, A Guide.

All presentations are filled with beautiful photography, great stories and lots of information.

Doris taught elementary grades in the Tucson Unified School District and at a small school for park employees in Big Bend National Park, Texas. She has held environmental education positions as Curator of Education at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum Environmental Education Resource Teacher for the Tucson Schools.

Doris has published natural history books as well.

Retired but even more active, Doris enjoys nature photography, travel and volunteering for the Tucson Audubon Society, Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation and the University of Arizona Wild Cat Program.

Her many friends here in SaddleBrooke and SaddleBrooke Nature Club members anticipate her annual migration to our meeting!

The SaddleBrooke Nature Club has just two more months before taking a summer hiatus. In May the topic is Animal Mating Game.

June’s topic is Bats and will include a field trip to the bat bridge in Tucson.

SaddleBrooke Nature Club meets at 4:00 p.m. the second Monday of the month downstairs in the Coyote Room at HOA 1. For further information check our website at
