FAFNM is holding guided walks on Monument streams during 2019. These interpretive tours will promote the AZ Water/Ways Smithsonian traveling exhibit, which arrives in Black Canyon City in mid-December 2019.
On this walk we'll visit the ephemeral Badger Spring Wash to see the effects of the Badger Fire that occurred June 21-24, 2019. The summer birds and reptiles will be present in this delicate xero-riparian area. Sunflowers and other plants are attracting butterflies. The trail is in the sandy wash. The monsoon may produce a little flow, some mud, and small rocks. Size limit: 17 persons. Good for students.
Badger Spring Wash is located 50 miles north of Phx, off I-17 exit #256, one mile east of the Interstate. Free event; additional hike details are sent when you register.
