Special Tours of Two Rarely Available Archaeological Sites
October 22, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm$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 Philip Halpenny at the Tubac Presidio for a tour of the Spanish colonial archaeological site that preserves the remains of the original 1752 Tubac town site. The Archaeological Conservancy protects this site and participants are asked to sign ‘An Acknowledgement of Risk Factors’ before entering. Meet at the Presidio at 9:30 am. After the first tour, bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy in either Parks’ picnic area. Next, we will meet in the Tumacácori parking lot at NOON and car pool with a National Park Service ranger for a tour of the Los Santos Ángeles de Guevavi mission. Established by Father Kino in 1691 where the Pima Revolt began, 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. Fee is $15 per person and includes both tours and admission to both Parks. Tour limited to 15. For reservations call the Presidio at 520-398-2252 or info@TubacPresidio.org.
