COOLIDGE, AZ – You’re invited to the Mission: Resilience family day at Casa Grande Ruins National Monument on Saturday, March 19th! Participate in fun activities that explore the resiliency of the Sonoran Desert Ecosystem and the Ancestral Sonoran Desert People who called the desert home.  

Self-guided hands-on stations will begin at 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. Strengthen your resiliency with activities such as giant Jenga, make (and take home!) your own pinch pot, learn about ruins preservation, plant and animal adaptations, and the amazing connections plants, animals and people have to our site. Bring your camera for the “selfie station for self-awareness”. Free giveaways will be provided for all participants.  

Casa Grande Ruins National Monument protects the multi-story Great House and the ruins of other ancient structures built by the people of the Sonoran Desert over 800 years ago.  The monument is open Tuesday - Saturday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. We are closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Independence Day. Directions and additional information are available on the monument’s website,, you may call (520) 723-3172, or follow us on Facebook by searching for Casa Grande Ruins National Monument.
