Sonoran Desert Master Gardener Conference

Learn about trees, gardening techniques, eco-design and the good and harmful insects that live in our yards and gardens.

July 12th is International Helmet Awareness Day. The aim of the campaign is to educate equestrians of all ages, disciplines and locations the benefits of wearing a properly fitting, secured and certified helmet.

Did you know that 20% of all head injuries involving horses happen while on the ground? Protect your head by wearing a helmet even when not mounted.

In the United States, an estimated 23,000 youth under 20 years are treated from equestrian-related injuries in an emergency department annually.
