OPAC’s 25th Anniversary Volunteer Paint Party and I-19 Canoa Rest Area Panels Display!

March 18, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The “Before There Was a Canoa” interpretive panel that will be added to the I-19 Canoa Ranch Rest Area in March. See full-size replica at Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s March 18 open house!

Please join Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s staff and volunteers on Monday, March 18, 2019 from 9:00-3:00 to help us celebrate Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s 25th Anniversary of our incorporation in Arizona, by volunteering to help repaint the exteriors of our buildings at the Tucson Unified School District’s Ajo Service Center facility! Our milestone Anniversary provides an opportunity to bring our supporters together as we freshen up our facilities and plan for our Next Quarter Century! Also, for the first time in Tucson, this event will feature a one-day display of banners replicating the 24 full-color interpretive panels that will be revealed at the March 31 reopening of the newly refurbished Interstate-19 Canoa Rest Area south of Green Valley. These panels (12 in each rest area on either side of I-19) identify and interpret the Canoa area’s archaeological, O’odham, Pascua Yaqui, Spanish, and Mexican cultures; the area’s ranching, mining, agriculture, and railroad history, and the local astronomical research, wildlife, and attractions. Friends of Canoa Heritage Foundation, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center, Indian tribes, and other organizations collaborated to design and install these beautiful panels that celebrate over 13,000 years of history at both the northbound and southbound rest area stops.

Old Pueblo Archaeology Center is located at 2201 W. 44th St., Tucson. To get on our volunteer schedule please contact Old Pueblo at 520-798-1201 or info@oldpueblo.org.
