In 2010, Smiling Dog Learning Center began with a little idea and a broad vision: to share our passion, care and concern for all things of the earth with others. While the Learning Center continues to evolve, that little idea has grown each year and now includes a wide array of classes and events designed to promote healthy modalities of growth in the Sonoran Desert. We have something for everyone, so come join us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
All classes are outdoors, weather permitting. Registration is required. Register for any class or event by calling (480)288-8749 or email email@example.com.
