The lizards of the White Sands have changed their color and characteristics to adapt to the environment. Learn details about their life-cycles and other amazing attributes from doctoral and post-doctoral researchers!  Biologists from the University of California, Berkeley, have been conducting research at White Sands for the past 13 years. Now, with the benefit of a National Science Foundation grant, they are making this one-day class available for NO CHARGE. This one-day class is offered on June 16 and again on June 17 from 9am to 1pm. (1 session)

Supplies: Bring a sack lunch and a water bottle. It is highly suggested that you wear sunglasses, sunscreen, and a hat.
