Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Culture & Birds: The Dragoons and the Amerind Foundation Field Trip

Rising to 7500 feet above sea level, the steep, sparsely vegetated Dragoon Mountains are home to such uncommon birds as Zone-tailed Hawks, Hepatic Tanagers, and Black-chinned Sparrows.

The area is equally notable for its human history, commemorated in the collections of the nearby Amerind Foundation. We will bird the mountains in the morning, then after lunch pay a visit to the Foundation’s museum, featuring the art, culture, and history of the region’s Native American inhabitants.

  • 5:30am – 2:30pm
  • $110/person + Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: Moderate (Some mild slopes, but still on good surfaces. Drive time to location approximately 60 minutes.)

 

Van Trips depart from the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at Reid Park.
