Arizona – Sonora Desert Museum: Rancho de la Osa

It rests in the desert grasslands along Arizona’s southern border with the dramatic backdrop of Baboquivari Peak always in view.

On this tour, we visit the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge, which has breeding programs for the pronghorn and endangered Masked Bobwhite Quail and offers birding for many species including Herons, Gray Hawks, Vermillion Fly Catchers, Loggerhead Shrikes and Golden Eagles. We will take in a lot of local history, learning about the Spanish Barb horses that descend from Fr. Kino’s herd, about the Mexican Revolution as it was played out here, and about old ghost towns and mining camps. We take a side trip to see the border town of Sasabe, sprinkle geology lessons in, have a morning free for optional activities such as riding e-bikes or horses, and enjoy fabulous meals. Come nighttime we are treated to cowboy poetry and a star-studded winter sky.
