FAFNM offers guided walks on Monument streams during 2019. These interpretive tours promote the Smithsonian AZ Water/Ways 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 2019. Fall migrating 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 with 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.
