Presentation: Prehistoric Rio Rico Revealed – by Dwight Thibodeaux, Sundays, January 10, 17, and 24, 2 pm
Historian Dwight Thibodeaux spoke last winter about the history of greater Rio Rico, and we learned about historic Rio Rico. Well, what happened in Rio Rico before Padre Kino and the Spanish arrived? Dwight has developed a new series of talks on Pre-historic Rio Rico. They will be presented on three successive Sunday afternoons. In Part 1 learn about how Mother Nature created the Rio Rico area and the Santa Cruz River. In Part 2 we’ll learn about prehistoric plants and animals (including dinosaurs and a massive petrified forest). And in Part 3 we’ll hear about the prehistoric people who lived here and learn about their many villages in the Rio Rico area. Each talk is $7.50 and includes admission to the Park. For all three talks, prepay our special price of $20 and get a special complimentary book.
