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.

“Just for Kids” – Desert CSI (Critter Scene Investigations) - Usery Park
Usery Mountain Regional Park
Calling all animal detectives! Join us on a wild search to find out which desert animals have crossed our path. Help investigate the clues that animals leave behind and go home an expert critter scene investigator! We will start with a live animal presentation that will get you ready for this adventure. Next, you will explore a secret area of the park looking for clues to find out what critters have been there. Who knows what will be around the next corner! Children ages 5-12 and their caregivers will enjoy this up-close experience with the animals that call our desert “home.” Please bring water, hats, and closed-toe shoes. Children must be accompanied by a caregiver. No pets, please. Uneven terrain on the trail is not conducive to strollers and wheelchairs. Feel free to bring a blanket or camp chair to use during the animal presentation portion of this program. You are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in the park after the program. Location: Group Picnic Area C.
