On December 8th, 2019 at 2pm, staff will present programs on the conservation legacy of Theodore Roosevelt and the American Antiquities Act. Gertrude Smith, Yavapai Culture Director, of Yavapai-Apache Nation will speak to the Yavapai perspective of the development of a National Monument on ancestral lands.
Warm beverages will be available for donation in partnership with Verde Valley Archaeology Center. All donations will go toward a travel fund to support an art show in August featuring tribal youth.
Our staff will make every effort to ensure that children and adults of all abilities are fully included in all of our recreation programs, facilities, and parks.
