FIRE BAN INFORMATION
Effective
Tuesday, May 27, 2014 through Friday, August 29, 2014
Maricopa County's regional parks will initiate the annual fire ban. This includes banning the use of all
campfire, fire pits and charcoal grills; however, it is still acceptable to use gas/propane grills in designated areas such as the ramada areas, semi-developed and developed camping sites, and along the shoreline at Lake Pleasant Regional Park.
If the parks do not receive ample rain during the monsoon season, the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department
may extend the fire ban to protect the parks resources and ensure visitor safety. To learn more, click here.

Bird Weirdness - Estrella
Estrella Mountain Park
Special guest speaker Joe Ford shares many unusual facts about some common bird species found worldwide. Why did the passenger pigeon become extinct? What is the most numerous bird in the world? What method does the cowbird, who never makes a nest, use to insure the success of its offspring? Why did brown pelicans all but disappear from Louisiana in the middle of the 20th Century? Flamingos, parrots, invasive starlings, storks, and screamers are just some of the birds discussed in this program. Biological magnification, sexual dimorphism, ecological connections are all part of this presentation. Presentation will be at the Nature Center.
