While businesses in the state gradually reopen during the coronavirus (COVID-19) response, in Cochise County the Friends of the San Pedro River continue to share the same concern of contracting or spreading the virus as many of you. The Friends of the San Pedro River recommend precautionary measures to protect our community and in doing so already have implemented such measures.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have cancelled all upcoming FSPR walks and other activities until further notice. Call 520-459-2555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org,
FOR ALL ACTIVITIES
Please follow guidance from Federal and State authorities on how to prevent this virus. You may find the latest guidance to prevent the spread of the virus at these following websites.
All FSPR interpretive walks and events are cancelled indefinitely. If you choose to go outdoors on your own in the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area or elsewhere, remember that social distancing is important to prevent the spread of the virus.
This directive also applies to any events involving carpools or bus transport hosted by docents of the Friends of the San Pedro River (e.g. the cancellation of visits by school children bused to the river as part of the FSPR Education Program).
Effective immediately, San Pedro House and Fairbank School House will be closed until further notice owing to concerns of community spread of infection.
