Get a close-up look at nature when the Arizona State University School of Life Sciences sponsors its annual Take a Hike event from 9 a.m. to noon April 21.

The free event will be at the Gilbert Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch, 2757 E. Guadalupe Road, east of Greenfield Road.

School of Life Sciences scientists and students will lead a series of guided hikes in the 110-acre preserve, talking about the birds (150 species identified there), insects, fish, reptiles, plants, mammals, geology/water resources and urban ecology.
