Mission Garden Field Trip

Apr ’14
9:00 am


The Mission Garden is a re-creation of the Spanish Colonial walled garden that was part of Tucson’s historic San Agustin Mission. In preparation for the Río Nuevo redevelopment of the area archaeological investigations were carried out revealing a time depth that goes back to the Archaic period. We will explore both the historical aspect of the site and the re-created ethnobotany with Diana Hadley and Donna Tang.  We will meet at the Garden at 9:00 am and plan an early lunch or late brunch at the nearby Mercado San Agustín following the tour. For more information on The Garden go to www.tucsonsbirthplace.org/tucsons-birthplace/mission-garden-project.  The group is limited to 20 people. To reserve a space contact Katherine Cerino
