FIRE BAN INFORMATION
Effective
Tuesday, May 27, 2014 through Thursday, August 28, 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.

Home School Program: Animal CSI: - San Tan
San Tan Mountain Regional Park
Whether at the zoo or the park, we all enjoy watching wildlife. But finding wild critters in the Sonoran desert can sometimes be tricky. We want to know where do they hide when it is hot or cold outside; what do they eat; how do they behave; and how to recognize their presence when we cannot visually find them. Therefore, we sometimes rely on their tracks, scat, bones, and fur to provide clues to their whereabouts. If you would like to investigate the animals of the Sonoran then this program is for you. Animal CSI is a 4-part series (not required to attend all four) that will have you investigating through inquiry and hands-on projects the secret lives of desert animals. Join Ranger Tish for this fun and informative program that is sure to bring out the detective in you. Dress for outdoors, weather permitting. 1.5 hours. Ages 7 and up. Meet inside the Nature Center.
