Sonoran Seed Pods

Scottsdale artist Jeff Zischke created this series of sculptures based on the shapes of seeds and seed pods of the Sonoran Desert trees, shrubs, and wildflowers found in park, such as mesquite, creosote, brittle bush, and yucca. The individual sculptures are placed along the ¾ mile hiking trail that makes a loop through the east end of the park.  An entry marker, honoring the memory of longtime Scottsdale resident and art enthusiast, Frank Crerie, is located at the top of the nature trail.  Mr. Crerie’s bequest to Scottsdale Public Art made this project possible.
