History Walks Scheduled for Fall, 2017

Come participate in walks to some of the most historic spots in Cochise County. The Friends of the San Pedro River are happy to announce our schedule for History Walks this fall. These outings to historic sites within the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area are led by our knowledgeable Friends of the San Pedro River Docents. We will offer walks to Millville, Fairbank, the Grand Central Mill, Murray Springs, the Clanton Ranch and Terrenate.

A special event this fall is an FSPR members-only walk to Contention on November 11th. Local historian and long time Friends docent Richard Bauer will lead this walk. You must be a member of the Friends to attend. We will have a sign-up roster; look for more information on this web site as the event approaches.

Get on out to visit these great spots and share an outdoor adventure in the SPRNCA!

Members-only walk to Charleston Cemetery, April 1

We are planning a walk to Charleston Cemetery on April 1.  The walk will be lead by docent Richard Bauer.  Due to the fragile nature of the site and the difficulty in reaching it, we are limiting participation to 20 people, members only.  Members may bring one guest if they wish.

The walk will depart from the Charleston Bridge parking area at 9 a.m.  The walk is approximately 3 to 3.5 miles round trip and will involve some bushwhacking and uneven terrain.  Participants will need to be prepared for the weather with hats, sunscreen, and plenty of water.

If you are interested in this walk, please send an email to fspr@sanpedroriver.org. Remember, this is for members only plus one guest, limited to 20 people.
