Romero Ruins – Beyond the Path
THIS FIELD TRIP IS FULL. There is a waiting list.
Romero Ruin in Catalina State Park is one of the largest and most significant archaeological sites within the northern Tucson Basin. The ruins are the remains of a Hohokam village that was occupied between A.D. 500 and A.D. 1450. Also visible at the site are the remains of more recent structures built by rancher Francisco Romero and extensive prehistoric agricultural fields. Bill Gillespie, archaeologist with the Coronado National Forest Service, will lead a tour of the site and it’s surrounds. Meet at Catalina State Park at 9:00 am. The tour will last until around noon so you should bring a snack, water, and wear hiking shoes. We will cover a couple of miles of not too strenuous walking. There is an entrance fee for the Park. Tour limited to 20 people. To reserve your place contact Katherine Cerino.
