Arizona’s National Monuments

Please join the New River/Desert Hills Community Association (NR/DHCA) at their Tuesday, Jan. 12 meeting starting at 7:30 p.m. This special meeting will be held at Crossroads Christian Fellowship at 42425 N. New River Road.

Arizona has more National Monuments under the National Landscape Conservation System than any state. Peggy Biegler, Executive Director of the Friends of the Agua Fria National Monument, will share photographs and information about these special places that are easily accessible in our state. Each one was preserved because of special characteristics, wildlife, plants, archaeological or cultural resources. No two monuments offer the same experience in the wonderful variety of climates and landscapes Arizona offers its residents. These will be preserved for future generations to enjoy in a way that national parks and other recreational areas will not. Come learn about these unique treasures of Arizona. The meeting is open to the public and all are welcome to attend.

This meeting also marks the beginning of new year so NR/DHCA is seeking nominees for the Board of Director elections to be held in March. Anyone who is a member in good standing is eligible to run. Please let us know if you are interested or want to nominate someone; call Shareen at 623-742-0150 or email NR/DHCA at
