Good news for those needing firewood!

The Tucson Field Office is offering free firewood permits for collecting downed wood at the Las Cienegas National Conservation Area (LCNCA). Permits issued will be valid Dec. 1 – Feb. 28, 2022.

Mesquite firewood is available because of the BLM’s ongoing grassland restoration program at the LCNCA. Invasive mesquite trees are downed to encourage growth of native grasses and improve habitat for wildlife, such as the pronghorn antelope.

Last month, volunteers contributed a combined 189 volunteer hours to clean up this area near Aguila. In all, the volunteers cleaned up about five tons of household trash and 1,200 pounds of recyclable metal! The cleanup was organized by The GreenUp Foundation with support from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and the Aguila FIRE Department. Thanks to our friends for their support of public lands!

As we observe Native American Heritage Month, we highlight the Agua Fria National Monument's rich archaeological tradition spanning 2,000 years of human history. At the confluence of Badger Springs Wash and the Agua Fria River, you can see evidence left by the Perry Mesa Tradition people, who lived on the mesas between 1250 and 1450. The site has at least 86 individual petroglyphs, which are symbols carved into the rock surface. Please help protect these sites as an important part of the nation's heritage. Don't touch petroglyph panels and leave everything as you found it.

Have you ever seen this very cool reptile? The western hognose snake has an upturned nose for b***owing through soil and leaves, a technique for finding its favorite food - toads! Don’t be scared if it hisses and inflates it body as it is not a threat to humans. Sometimes it will even turn over and thrash its head from side to side or even play dead - this is just a defense mechanism. Once you walk away, it then will make sure that the coast is clear and slither away. See if you can spot this reptile when out and about hiking near Cienega Creek in the Las Cienegas National Conservation Area.

Tucson Field Office staff and a BLM site host, along with volunteers from partners the Friends of the San Pedro River and U.S. Army Fort Huachuca joined forces during Saturday's National Public Lands Day event at the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area.

The group installed a new ramada and picnic table and performed trail maintenance at Murray Springs National Historic Landmark.

The loop trail was cleared of encroaching vegetation, leaving a clear path for visitors to walk and the beautiful new ramada and picnic table will enhance the Murray Springs experience for all visitors.

Dam on San Pedro above Millville and Mill

In the early days, surface water was not available in Tombstone to process ore from the mines and ore was hauled to stamp mills in Millville where water was available from the San Pedro River. A dam was constructed near Brunkow Hill and water was conveyed to the Tombstone Mills and Mining Company 10 stamp mill through a system of flumes. Note that the photograph of the dam is prior to construction of the railroad on the east side of the San Pedro River.

These photographs were taken in 1880 by Carleton Watkins from San Francisco on 18 by 22-inch glass plates. Watkins traveled in a customized wagon with his chemicals and equipment.

As the BLM’s representative at NYCALC, Brooke Wheeler, BLM-AZ Youth, Volunteer, and Environmental Education lead, not only attends the conference every year, but also selects the junior faculty members who mentor, guide, and inspire the high school students. “NYCALC is one of the few federal multi-agency native youth training programs that teach the necessary leadership principles and conservation skills for students to address conservation issues within their communities. My commitment to Native youth and my indigenous community has always been a running theme throughout my career, so I am truly honored to represent the BLM and work with such brilliant junior faculty members and high school students.

Ghostly Fairbank! Did you know that there is a "ghost town" within the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area (NCA), along the San Pedro River? Fairbank began its life as a town with the construction of a railroad in 1881, and it soon became an important depot as well as the closest railroad stop to Tombstone, then one of the largest western cities (15,000 in 1882).

Originally called Junction City, Kendall, then Fairbanks, it was officially named Fairbank on May 16, 1883. The name refers to N.K. Fairbank of Chicago, who helped finance the railroad.

The town was built on an old Mexican land grant, the San Juan de las Boquillas y Nogales, which was bought by the Boquillas Land and Cattle Company in 1901. The company evicted all potential land owners, but continued to lease the mercantile building and a few residences well into the 1970s.

The Bureau of Land Management acquired the land that was once the Mexican Land Grant in 1986 as part of the San Pedro Riparian NCA. Today the area is open for the public to enjoy. Take a self-guided tour around what was once a thriving boom-town of the wild west!
