“Archaeology of the Ironwood Forest Area”

November 14, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

On Saturday, November 14, 2015 at 1:00 PM, archaeologist Allen Dart will summarize the archaeology of the Ironwood Forest National Monument and vicinity during the “Meet the Monument” event. To be held at Ragged Top Mountain (Ironwood National Monument, Arizona), this event is part of the Friends of Ironwood Forest’s efforts to inform visitors about the Sonoran Desert as found in the monument. Other presenters for this day-long event (8:30 AM-3:00PM) include Ken Mahoney (BLM, Arizona National Conservation Lands), Bob Schmalzel (botany/cactuses), Joe Sheehey (bighorn sheep), and Camillus Lopez (Tohono O’odham Community College, on Tohono O’odham culture). Opportunities abound to engage the desert directly through guided hikes around the base of Ragged Top Mountain and walkabouts focused on specific topics or activities including natural history, bighorn sheep, birding, and nature photography. Bring your own water bottles, lunch, and camp chairs. For more information and directions to the event visit http://ironwoodforest.org/ or contact Jim Avramis at 520-334-9193 or jimavramis@gmail.com. This is not an Old Pueblo Archaeology Center event.
