The site is protected by the Archaeological Conservancy and participants are asked to sign 'An Acknowledgement of Risk Factors' before entering the site. Afterward enjoy a bring-your-own picnic lunch in either park's picnic area before joining NPS archaeologist Jeremy Moss at 12:30 pm for a special archaeological tour of Tumacácori Mission.
