Join us on Saturday, March 17, for a celebration of Ironwood Forest National Monument! Learn from local experts about all the amazing resources and creatures found in the monument, including bighorn sheep, saguaro cactus, reptiles and Native American cultural and archeological sites.

Local naturalists will be on hand giving presentations and leading short, family-friendly nature walks. This gathering is free and open to the public. We’ll start early with sign-ups for the walk-about hikes at 8am under the main canopy. Gather on the north side of iconic Ragged Top, approximately 20 miles west of Marana. Check back here for more details or email [email protected] with questions.

Are you curious about the lives of bighorn sheep and how the last indigenous herd in the Tucson valley is doing? Want to know more about the archeological and cultural history of the Santa Cruz Valley and Ironwood Forest? Do you want to know some secrets of the iconic saguaro cactus and learn the findings of the latest research? Learn the status and future plans for this miraculous Ironwood Forest National Monument in our back yard!
