FSPR volunteers, please review the position descriptions provided by the Bureau of Land Management for each volunteer activity you plan to provide for the fiscal year beginning October 1, 2022.
It is with great pleasure that we announce that the San Pedro House will reopen on Monday, March 21st.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during the past 2 years while we rode out the Covid storm. What a long, strange trip it’s been.
During the closure we took the opportunity to do a much-needed renovation of the inside of the San Pedro House. Please stop by and see the newly renovated store and check out the big clearance sale on the front porch. But, please don’t all come at once, because we are only allowing 10 people at a time in the store!
The San Pedro House will be open every day from 9:30am to 4:30pm. We look forward to seeing you.
With spring approaching, birders will want to consult a free resource before heading outdoors locally: a digital audio collection called SEAZ Birds: The Missing Tracks. This collection of the unique songs and calls of our regional specialties (missing from most birding apps) is now archived by the American Birding Association and available for online listening or for offline download into a smartphone music library:
The project was created by local birder Diana Doyle, who moved to Southeast Arizona to enjoy the unique birding region of the Madrean Sky Islands. Logging hours in the field, she noticed that many of the region’s unique borderland calls were missing in the popular national birding apps, whether it was a common species like Bewick’s Wren with its very different Mexican song, or a hoped-for rarity such as Eared Quetzal. SEAZ Birds: The Missing Tracks ultimately became a 117-track, 75-species, five-disc digital collection.
