Archaeological Sites Special Tour
October 3, 2015 @ 2:30 am - 7:30 am$15
In celebration of International Archaeology Month, Tubac Presidio State Historic Park will collaborate with Tumacácori National Historical Park to provide special tours of two unique archaeological sites. Join Melanie Rawlins, a National Park Service ranger, at 9:30 am for a tour of the Los Santos Ángeles de Guevavi mission, established by Father Kino in 1691, the place where the Pima Revolt began. Recent excavations have revealed evidence of extensive prehistoric habitation on the mission site, along with evidence of mission era corrals and other structures. This site is only available for special guided tours. Meet in the Tumacácori parking lot and we will car pool to the site. Bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy in either Parks’ picnic area. After lunch join Philip Halpenny and Gwen Griffin at Tubac Presidio for a tour of the Spanish colonial archaeological site that preserves the remains of the original 1752 Tubac town site, from 1 to 2:30 pm. Tubac Presidio was established as a direct result of the Pima Revolt. The Archaeological Conservancy protects this site and participants are asked to sign ‘An Acknowledgement of Risk Factors’ before entering. Fee is $15 per person and includes both tours and admission to both Parks. For reservations call the Presidio at 520-398-2252 or info@TubacPresidio.org.
