Tips for birding Tumamoc Hill
Tumamoc Hill is a long-time research station that has focused its work on desert ecosystems. A lot of important, ground-breaking work was done here in the early half of the century. Many of the research buildings are on the historic register. Though the suburbs of Tucson have slowly surrounded the mountain, there is a significant area of undisturbed habitat here. This has become a popular place to walk on weekends.

Tumamoc Hill will be Tucson’s gift to tomorrow, a microcosm of research, education, creativity, and respect that shows what the world can do to save its precious natural legacy and cultural history.

Tumamoc will always be open space, a hallowed refuge for people and nature. Investigators and visitors will come to see and to study its natural ecosystems and the traces of the city’s ancient people.

Tumamoc Hill — a 2300-year-old abandoned settlement perches on its mesa top and the rich cultural context of two millennia of human society lie at its feet.
