Mojave Maxine has Emerged!
Mojave Maxine, the desert tortoise in the Mojave Desert Garden exhibit, emerged from brumation (reptilian hibernation) at 11:56am on Monday, February 8th. Spring is here! The students winning the Mojave Maxine Emergence Contest in nine southern California counties have all been notified. Over 1,200 students entered the contest this year. Thanks so much to all teachers and students who participated in our contest! We hope you will enter again next year and help spread the word about Mojave Maxine.
