5/26/2015 - Extended due to dry conditions. A date to cancel the fire ban has not yet been determined.
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.

Last Day Before the End of the World Hike at White Tank Park
White Tank Mountains Regional Park
We have been hearing about the end of man’s reign on this planet for years. How do we know this? The Mayan Calendar nuts of course! Where have you been? So to celebrate our demise, we will take one last hike before we all vaporize into nothingness, which, by the way, is supposed to happen at 3:11 am MST on 12.21.12. We will do a wash hike to talk about the last 3.5 billion years or so. This is an off trail walk in some rough terrain and problematic for young children and those with physical limitations. Plan accordingly. Meet at Area 9 before 10:00 am. If you are not there at 10 we will leave without you. If we are all still here after 3:11 MST, feel free to read the rest of the schedule and to the Mayan believers we say, “told you so!”
