Preparing for climate change… the Omaha Zoo created the world’s largest indoor desert

In North Phoenix there are thirty-three acres of plush Tiffway 419 Hybrid Bermuda Sports Turf (whatever that is). This is where Leaf played soccer last weekend. Surrounding the soccer complex was a buffer of native habitat with DANGER signs.  The signs didn’t say the area was protected, just dangerous. Why? Jumping cholla? Killer javelina? Or maybe, native habitat around Phoenix has officially been deemed dangerous.
