April 15--May 15
tbc_logoTucson Bird Count - 14th Annual
The spring count of the Tucson Bird Count is here and birders are needed to fill in remaining routes!
Any birder that can readily identify the birds of Tucson is invited to adopt a route to survey. It only takes one morning of your choice between April 15--May 15 to conduct 5 minute counts at each of the stops along your route. Many of the routes are in urban Tucson and don't require any hiking, you can easily drive from point to point. Other routes are in more natural areas and some points on the route do require some hiking. There are even a few routes that are only hiking.

May 3
San Pedro River Festival
This one-day festival celebrating the last free-flowing river of the southwest will feature bird watching, nature and history exhibits, and information on sustainable farming and ranching. There will also be special tours of private conservation areas that you can sign up for from 7am on. Most of the ecologically richest portions of the San pedro River are on private land and this is a rare opportunity to visit these habitats and see why this area has been designated "one of the last great places!"
