Bird Walks in February
Contact: Anita Badertscher, 520-377-5060
Come explore Tumacácori National Historical Park's birding hotspots! Guided bird watching strolls will take place on two upcoming Saturdays, February 8 and 22. The walk meets at the Tumacácori Visitor Center at 9 a.m. and may continue until noon if birds are active.
Participants should wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water. Walking will take place on and off trails throughout the park's varied habitats. While bringing your own binoculars is recommended, the park has several pairs of binoculars available for loan to participants. The park's lands include rare types of southwestern forest located along the Santa Cruz River. Some bird species found in these and other local habitats are not usually seen in other places in this country, and are part of the reason why visiting southern Arizona is on many a birders' bucket list.
Admission to the park is $3.00 per adult, free for federal pass holders and children under age 16. For more information, call (520) 377-5060, extension 0.
