What: All-day Visit to Agua Fria National Monument
When: Saturday, June 10 -- meetup time TBD
Where: Agua Fria National Monument, Arizona -- meetup location TBD
On April 26 President Trump launched a historic attack on dozens of our country's national monuments. In Arizona that means Grand Canyon-Parashant, Vermilion Cliffs, Ironwood Forest and Sonoran Desert national monuments are now at risk.
Recognizing that an attack on any of these monuments is an attack on our public lands at large, the Center is organizing a visit to Agua Fria National Monument on Saturday, June 10. We'd love for you to join us.
Time in the monument will allow us to better know this protected place and connect with others fighting to save our wildlands. Center staff Ryan Beam and Joe Trudeau will be joined by Sierra Club's Gary Beverly and Friends of Agua Fria National Monument's Tim Flood and Michael Hoogendyk, who will help us interpret all that we're seeing.
The event will be limited to the first 20 signups to keep the experience intimate and reduce our footprint -- so RSVP using the form on this page.
And note -- the event is free and the hiking won't be particularly strenuous, but we will be out in the sun most of the day. So please make sure to bring anything you'll need (sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, water, food, appropriate footwear and clothing). Carpools will leave from Flagstaff and Prescott in the morning and return in the evening. We hope to see you June 10.
If you have questions, feel free to email the Center's Ryan Beam. And if you can't make the hike, make sure to send a letter in support of our monuments here.
