Honey Bee Village

April 7 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Honey Bee Village is a prehistoric Hohokam Ballcourt Village on the southeastern flank of the Tortolita Mountains in the middle of the Canada del Oro Valley. In anticipation of private development within the site, Pima County acquired 13 acres of the core site area that includes an array of trash mounds, the ballcourt, as well as several residential and other ancillary cultural features. Several hundred domestic houses have been documented at the site along with many other cultural features. There is an impressive pottery sherd scatter. The site was extensively studied and mapped by Desert Archaeology, Inc. and Pima County maintains the 13 acre core as one five archaeological preserves it manages throughout eastern Pima County. Pima County archaeologist Ian Milliken will lead the tour which will start at 9 am and last about 2 hours. A small parking lot is available on Moore Rd., just east/northeast of the intersection of Moore Rd. and Rancho Vistoso Boulevard. Carpooling is strongly recommended. To register contact Cannon Daughtrey. Registration is limited to 20 people.
