San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area Sierra Vista Reviews
Human Occupation dating back 13,000 Years Mar 11, 2013
My family visited the San Pedro Riparian Conservation area today. It was a clear day outside and beautiful weather to hike. The conservation area was created in 1988 by Congress to help protect the rare ecosystem of the desert riparian forest. The riparian area covers approximately 58,000 acres of land from the Mexican border to St. David.
San Pedro River flows through from the northern direction from Mexico and is internationally recognized as an important resource. Wildlife reproduction in the area includes rare species of humming birds and is also a pathway for migratory birds. Many bird watchers make their way here to see and find rare birds and Humming birds. As a matter of fact Sierra Vista is known as the Hummingbird capital of the world.
Did you know that this area is known to have human occupation dating as far back as 13,000 years? Impressive Human History. Well worth visiting if you find yourself in Sierra Vista.
