Nature walk in State Natural Area November 16

Join Friends of Sonoita Creek leaders for a loop hike along the Black Hawk and Sonoita Creek trails in the Sonoita Creek State Natural Area adjacent to Patagonia Lake State Park where you will learn some natural history of the area. The hike is approximately 3 miles long and is moderately difficult due to rocky, uneven surfaces in some areas and a short but steep ascent out. 

Participants should meet at the Patagonia Museum/BRN parking area, 100 School St, for participants in the Patagonia area.  If traveling from points south or west, arrangements can be made to meet at the mailboxes on Lake Patagonia Rd. (The Park has waived the usual entrance fee for this event). 

Bring sturdy walking shoes or hiking boots, hiking poles if you normally use them, hat, sunscreen, water, snacks, and binoculars if you have them. 

Pre-registration is required by emailing with a maximum of 13 participants. Let us know if you will be meeting in Patagonia or need directions to the Lake Patagonia Rd meeting point. 

The event is sponsored by Friends, Borderlands Restoration Network and The Arizona Native Plant Society
