Vista del Rio Archaeological Site Free Tour

March 2 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

TOUR FULL – WAITING LIST   On Saturday, March 2, 2024, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m., join Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Vista del Rio Archaeological Site Free Tour” guided by archaeologist Allen Dart at the Vista del Rio Cultural Resource Park, 7575 E. Desert Arbors St. (at Dos Hombres Road), Tucson.

In celebration of Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month, archaeologist Allen Dart (Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s executive director) leads this tour to Vista del Rio, an ancient village of the southern Arizona Hohokam archaeological culture that was inhabited between 1000 and 1150 CE. Archaeological test excavations there revealed evidence of Hohokam houses, outdoor ovens and pits, and possibly an ancient irrigation canal. These features are no longer visible but in this visit to the park Mr. Dart will show subtle clues to their existence.

Reservations required by 5 pm February 29info@oldpueblo.org or 520-798-1201.
