On September 26, 2015 Ranger Gabriel lead a group on a Anza Trail clean up at Tumacácori National Historical Park for Public Lands Day. Check out the photos of the group and visit the trail! Happy Hiking!


A big shoutout to members of the Rio Rico High School Interact Club, Isabel of the Green Valley Brownie Troop, and Joy from Tucson for their help on National Public Lands Day! The crew enjoyed a 3-mile hike on the park's stretch of the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail and collected significant amounts of trash that had been accumulating along the Santa Cruz River during the monsoon season. Thank you for your service!
