Meet Tucson's Birds With New Map

The printed Tucson Birding Trail Map is available starting Saturday. The free map shows the 45 best locations in and around Tucson for finding wild birds. The sites include a range of mountain, desert, and wetland locations, each with its own variety of species.

The map will be introduced at Tucson Meet Your Birds, a special event this Saturday. Co-sponsored by the Tucson Audubon Society and Tucson Water, the bird celebration will be held from 7 a.m.-2 p.m. at Sweetwater Wetlands, 2511 W. Sweetwater Drive. After the event, the map will be available at a variety of Tucson Audubon and Tucson Parks and Recreation department locations.

The Tucson Birding Trail Map was produced by Parks and Recreation and the Tucson Audubon Society, with funding from the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Heritage Fund. As many as 350 wild bird species have been seen in and around Tucson over the years.
