Join NPCA on National Public Lands Day to give back to Tumacácori National Historical Park. Help us remove a season's worth of litter from the Santa Cruz River along the park’s De Anza Trail. Trash in Arizona’s creeks and rivers is not only unsightly – it pollutes the water and creates hazardous habitat for wildlife dependent upon this precious water.
If you’re a geocacher, the event is registered as a “Cache In, Trash Out” event. There will also be some “Healthy Parks, Healthy People” activities, includnig vital sign screenings and nature prescriptions.
Come out to clean up this beautiful and special area, then stick around for the free raspados.
