Tubac Hawk Watch with Tucson Audubon!

Come out and scope the hawks and new optics in Tubac at the Hawk Watch 2024 Optic Event with Tucson Audubon!

Tucson Audubon’s optic partners are gathering with us at the Tubac Hawk Watch this year! We’ll have reps from Vortex, Leica, Swarovski, and Zeiss showing off the latest birding optics. You’re welcome to try them all out and purchase from our Nature Shop on site!

o Guided birding walks and events led by Tucson Audubon staff and volunteers.

There will also be daily morning and afternoon bird walks along the nearby De Anza trail and Santa Cruz River, led by staff and volunteers of Tucson Audubon and Tubac Nature Center. Our optics partners will also be leading trips so you can try out their gear on the trail before you buy!

To register for these free De Anza Trail trips, see the schedule below and click on the title of the trip you’d like to register for. Each trip will take an identical route, so there is no need to sign up for more than one.

If you do not wish to attend a De Anza Trail field trip, but rather just wish to join in the communal watching of the hawks themselves as they fly over the park, there is no need to register, just show up at any time between 8 AM and 12 PM at the location below!
