FIRE BAN INFORMATION
Effective
Tuesday, May 27, 2014 through Friday, August 29, 2014
Maricopa County's regional parks will initiate the annual fire ban. This includes banning the use of all
campfire, fire pits and charcoal grills; however, it is still acceptable to use gas/propane grills in designated areas such as the ramada areas, semi-developed and developed camping sites, and along the shoreline at Lake Pleasant Regional Park.
If the parks do not receive ample rain during the monsoon season, the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department
may extend the fire ban to protect the parks resources and ensure visitor safety. To learn more, click here.

Bird Walk With Sonoran Audubon-Estrella
Estrella Mountain Park
This is one of the best places to see birds in the Phoenix area. It's fun to become a bird brain as you increase your knowledge of our feathered friends with the folks at Sonoran Audubon. You can easily see roadrunners and ospreys, so get down here for the fantastic bird life at Estrella Park! Between the river habitat and the mesquite Bosque on the turf area, it's possible to see well over 150 different species. When you think about it, everyone is a birdwatcher-you can do it wherever or whoever you are-but it's more fun if you know what they are. Meet at east side of turf in dirt parking lot. Bring your own binoculars and books if you have them, a limited number will be available if you don't. This hike will be every fourth Sunday ending in April. RAIN CANCELS.
