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.

"Not So Early Bird" Birdwalk- McDowell Park
McDowell Mountain Regional Park
This may be your last chance to get up late to meet the birds, before the heat of summer hits. The weather for Friday is forecasted to be unusually cool for this time of year, so grab your binocs and your life list and come on out to the Park. New to birding? Lifelong birder and new McDowell Ranger Amy Ford will show you what to look for. You may be surprised at how colorful our desert birds can be. We'll look for migratory birds such as Wilson's warblers (pictured below) as they wing their way through the park. All ages are welcome, only an interest in learning about birds is required. Meet at the Nursery Tank Trailhead.
