Saturday, July 17, 2021

ON HOLD FOR NOW SINCE TONTO NF IS CLOSED!! Join CAzBA for a field trip up north to Tonto Creek situated below the scenic Mogollon Rim northeast of Payson at an elevation of about 6000 feet. This trip doesn't require a high-clearance vehicle; and there are numerous places to stop along the three-mile road that winds along uphill to the Tonto Fish Hatchery. Temperatures are usually in the high 80s up there in July. Nectar plants we'll look for include Arizona Thistle, Blackberry, Butterfly Weed, Buckbrush, Watercress, Bergamot. (male Taxiles Skipper pictured) Please wear sturdy shoes and a hat, bring water, snacks and a sack lunch. Binoculars are definitely recommended. Carpool to burn less gas, and get acquainted with others who love nature - catch a ride, or offer to share empty seats in your car. We ask for a $5 donation per person. Limit to 15 participants.
