Escape the city on a self-guided quarter-mile nature trail featuring prehistoric petroglyphs, native desert plants, and animals in their natural habitat.
The preserve features historical research data completed by J. Simon Bruder, as well as displays of on-going Southwest archaeology research by ASU faculty and students.
The university has operated, protected and preserved the site since 1994. Opportunities to explore and learn more about the site and indigenous cultures are available through guided tours, publications and on-going lectures series. We look forward to your visit!
Included with admission, these guided tours offer a deeper look at the nature and ecology of the Sonoran Desert focusing on plants and wildlife in the fall and how prehistoric native people would have incorporated them into their daily lives. Tours will be offered Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 10 a.m., and Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 10 a.m. Tour included with admission fee.
