San Pedro National Conservation Area

STAFF PICK: If you want to know what the Santa Cruz looked like before Tucson turned into a megalopolis, check out the San Pedro River in the San Pedro National Conservation Area near Sierra Vista. Of course, this works both ways. With Sierra Vista growing by leaps and bounds, the paving of the countryside and the continuing of agricultural and industrial pumping, the future of the river is uncertain, at best. For a glimpse of the future, go stand by our own dusty Santa Cruz now, and see what the San Pedro will look like in 50 years--if things continue as they are. But don't wait another year to see the San Pedro in all its burbling glory. Seasonal, guided hikes are offered by the Friends of the San Pedro River.
