Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, in association with the Gila National Forest and Heart of the Gila, announces “From the River to the Stars,” a National Public Lands Day event on Saturday, September 28, 2019. The day will kick off at the West Fork Trailhead where, from 10 am to 1 pm, visitors are welcome to join a short river walk to learn about the native plants of the Gila region as well as the non-native species which threaten them. At the end of the walk there will be an opportunity to help remove non-natives from the sensitive riparian edge.

Events continue at 2 pm with a special cliff dwellings tour. Participants are invited to meet a Ranger at the benches outside Cave 1 for a 45 minute guided walk through the dwellings. Because the program begins at the dwellings, it’s recommended that interested parties embark from the trailhead by 1:30 pm to make it to the meeting point in time. Finally, Ranger Blake invites guests to the Visitor Center parking lot at 8 pm for a 45 minute astronomy talk with a miniature star party to follow. Telescopes will be available for public viewing of deep space objects and further discussion.
