A Celebration of the Desert Sat. March 19, 2016

The Cabeza Prieta Natural History Association has sponsored the celebration of the Sonoran Desert for 15 years. The day-long event brings together the desert’s governmental land-holders and users, the residents and visitors of the area, tribal members, and other organizations. Everyone attending the Sonoran Shindig will have an opportunity to learn and experience the uniqueness of the desert’s flora and fauna..

It’s time to mark your calendar for Saturday March 19 and to plan to attend. We are inviting representatives of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge, Bureau of Land Management, Barry M Goldwater Range, Luke Air Force Base, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. There is space on the plaza for booths and lots of additional room for activities.

Many non-governmental organizations will also be here. We will have our own booth with representatives to answer questions, sell merchandise from our nature bookstore, accept new members and to renew existing memberships. Please be a part of this important day. Let your message be heard and show the public what you do and why the Sonoran Desert is important to your endeavors. Government and non-profit educational organizations are sponsored by our association.

The plaza will be full of activities including a photography show, music, information and great local food. If you wish to participate as a vendor contact us for our reasonable rates to participate. If you have a musical group and would like to participate contact us with your particulars.
