Tumacácori National Historical Park


Tumacácori is a cultural crossroads in Arizona’s Santa Cruz River valley where O’odham, Yaqui and Apache people lived until European Jesuit and Franciscan missionaries, settlers, and soldiers arrived.

 

"The cultural and natural resources at Tumacácori National Historical Park tell an important story about local Native American communities and the intersection with Spanish exploration, as well as the human connection to the desert lands of southern Arizona,” says Mike Medrano, Superintendent. 

 

Just down the street from Wisdom's, our national park is a wonder and hosts numerous special events throughout the year.

Entrance to the park costs $10 per adult, free for federal pass holders and children under 16. For more information, call 520-377-5060 or visit 

www.nps.gov/tuma


Park to Park Hikers’ Shuttle Returns 

 Hikers can take advantage of this shuttle to walk the four-mile stretch of the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail between Tumacácori and the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park, catching a free ride back to their starting point.

From 8:00 a.m. to noon on the third Saturday of the month, October through March, the Hikers’ Shuttle will run continuously between the parking lot at the Tumacácori Visitor Center and the parking lot of the Tubac Presidio’s Anza Trail trailhead. Reservations are not required. 

Trail conditions may vary throughout the season. If sections between Tumacácori and Tubac are impassable, the shuttle may run between Tumacácori and the trailhead on Palo Parado Road. Both section of the Anza Trail are mostly level and shady. Wear good walking shoes, dress for the weather, and carry water and snacks. 

For more information on the hike or other park events and activities, call Tumacácori National Historical Park at 520-377-5060, or visit the park website, at nps.gov/tuma

I was asked to share with you that rat poison is killing animals that eat the rats that have ingested the poison. (Round Up is another killer of our pets and wildlife).

Please consider finding another way to handle your rat problem in order to protect your sweet pets and our beautiful wildlife. And many have successfully gardened organically for 25 years without ever using weed or insect killers by attracting birds (tall water fountain and never birdseed) and by planting native plants that attract natural predators. Pulling weeds after it rains is also most effective!

Here is a link to some non-poison ideas for rat problems:
