Santa Cruz River History Tour
$25/Member, $30/Non-member includes admission to Mission Gardens

This two-mile walking tour is led by Mauro Trejo and focuses on our relationship with the Santa Cruz River, how it supported Tucson’s early residents, and the factors in the 19th and 20th century that affected its demise.

The tour begins and ends at Tucson’s Mission Garden (946 W. Mission Lane) and includes the sites of the former Spanish mission and the O’odham village that was the origin of our modern city. Attendees also visit Tucson’s tallest tree and the Garden of Gethsemane, a holy site of statues made by WWI veteran and artist Felix Lucero in the 1940s.

Pre-Registration is required.  Click here to register.
