Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Tucson Audubon Mason Center and Safe Urban Habitat Field Trip

Join Habitat at Home Coordinator, Kim Matsushino, and Community Science Coordinator, Olya Weekley for a tour of the 20-acre Mason Center that is situated in a nearly pristine saguaro-ironwood habitat in NW Tucson.

Learn about the habitat improvements that have been made around the facilities, including pollinator and habitat gardens, and how you can bring these same enhancements to your home. Along with discovering new ways to improve your habitat at home, we’ll also look for Sonoran specialty birds like Costa’s Hummingbird, Gambel’s Quail, Cactus Wren, Curve-billed Thrasher, and Black-throated Sparrow. Drive time to meeting location from festival venue is about 25 minutes. Limited to 10 participants.

  • 6:30am – 8:30am
  • $10/person + Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: Easy (flat walking trails, less than one mile easy walking)


“Drive Yourself” field trips will meet on-site at birding locations and you will received detailed directions.
