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.
