Tumacácori National Historical Park invites the public to explore the mission grounds and a 1.5 mile portion of the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 4th. "This will be a fun event for anyone who enjoys nature and hunting for special objects," says Superintendent Bob Love. "Explorers of all ages are welcomed to participate."
In celebration of National Trails Day, participants will explore the mission grounds and Anza Trail searching for a list of items, both living and non-living. Point values vary by the difficulty of finding each item;for example, a photograph of a tree with identification is worth five points, while taking a video of a bird in flight is worth ten points. Participants win prizes based on their point score.
Trails in the mission grounds are paved and accessible. The Anza trail is considered an easy hike on flat terrain, but closed footwear is encouraged as it is not paved. Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather and bring a water bottle.
Admission to the park is $5 per adult, free for federal pass holders and children under 16.
