Sunset/Full Moon on Upper Mt. Lemmon with Tim Helentjaris

Registration: $35/member, $50/non-member. 

Trip Difficulty: Easy walking with less than 2 miles total between mostly short jaunts and minimal elevation gain on old roads or established trails. Restrooms at the picnic grounds at several stops.

We’re going to dodge the summer heat and start up the mountain in late afternoon, planning to get in some birding at a site or two near the top of Mt. Lemmon where it’s considerably cooler, looking for higher elevation species common to this habitat. As it gets closer to dark, we’ll enjoy our picnic dinner. Afterwards, we’ll then work our way back down the mountain stopping at different locations to look for night birds specific to each of these habitats. Wear good walking shoes, hat, binoculars, water and your own picnic eats along with a light jacket for after dark along and a headlamp if you have one. Limited to 11 participants – car-pooling required. Instructions for meet-up will be emailed to registered participants before the trip.

Leader: Tim Helentjaris

Registration for this walk is $35 for members and $50 for non-members. Register here beginning May 13, 7:00 AM.
