The San Pedro House will reopen March 21st!

Dear Friends,

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.

All FSPR events cancelled (COVID-19 response)

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 fspr@sanpedroriver.orgif you have further questions or concerns in this regard.

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.

MODIFIED ACTIVITIES

Docent-guided Walks

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).

Bookstore Operations

Effective immediately, San Pedro House and Fairbank School House will be closed until further notice owing to concerns of community spread of infection.
