The Friends of the San Pedro River were urged to attend to voice support for continued preservation of our precious riparian area with its rich wildlife habitat and unique cultural resources.
Up to 10 species of hummingbirds use the green corridor of the San Pedro River as a freeway between their tropical winter retreats and their northern nesting grounds.
The public is invited to get a close-up look at these tiny travelers, as staff and volunteers from the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory capture, band, weigh, measure, and release them as part of long-term studies of the bird life of this vital migration route.
At San Pedro House, observe hummingbird banding from 4:00pm – 6:00pm.
Hello, I am writing on behalf of the San Pedro River Arts Council. Last Spring, Catie Fenn, who works for the BLM, contacted us to enquire if we might be interested in participating in this year’s Fairbank Day in October.
I wish to enquire if this would indeed be an option, as members of our group have said that they would definitely like to have a booth. Please contact me .
