Beyond Chuk-son Trail Walk with Ironwood Tree Experience

January 15 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Join Ironwood Tree Experience Youth Action Community and staff for a refreshing 1-mile stroll along a section of the “Chuk-son Trail”. This interactive nature and history walk begins on the east side of the Mercado San Augustin Annex and concludes at the El Tiradito Shrine in Barrio Viejo. If you are interested in history, nature, architecture and culture then you’ll love this interpretive walk through the heart of Tucson!

The “Chuk-son Trail” is an informal interpretive trail meandering along the historically fascinating avenues, arroyos, and alleys of Tucson. The trail highlights various humans and ecology of the past and the present, and describes what makes our place in the Sonoran Desert special. Participants may walk the entire route or just parts of it. The Chuk-son Trail was created and is guided by trained Youth Action Corps and Ironwood Tree Experience staff.

Starts: Mercado San Augustin Annex – 267 South Avenida del Convento, Tucson, AZ 85745 at 9am

Finish: Barrio Viejo, El Tiradito Shrine – NW corner of S Main Avenue and W Simpson Street around 11:30 AM.

Wear sensible shoes, bring a large reusable water bottle, and don’t forget a hat and sunscreen. Youth ages 8 to 80 are welcome!

For more questions and to register please call the Ironwood Tree Experience-Urban Field Station at 520-829-7001 or email deborah@ironwoodtreeexperience.org
