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 Philip Halpenny and Gwen Griffin for a tour of the Spanish colonial archaeological site south of the Presidio that preserves the remains of the original 1752 Tubac town site, from 10 to 11:30am.

Bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy in either Park’s picnic areas before joining National Park Service archaeologist Jeremy Moss at 12:30pm for an archaeological tour of Tumacácori mission, established by Father Kino in 1691, making it Arizona’s oldest mission site.
