Upcoming SMRC Mission Tours…

Many of you have been waiting for news of another SMRC tour. Your wait is over! On Thursday, March 30, 2023, we will be visiting the Spanish mission sites of the Santa Cruz Valley. During this one-day tour, guests will learn about the Spanish colonial history of this valley that is part of the larger Pimeria Alta, home to the O’odham – the Indigenous people for whom the missions were established. The intinerary includes visits to Mission Garden, Mission San Xavier del Bac, the adobe ruins of Mission Los Santo Angeles de Guevavi, and Mission San Jose de Tumacacori. The tour will include a light breakfast at Mission Garden and lunch at Wisdom’s Cafe. To register, contact Monica Young at 520-621-6278 or mzyoung@arizona.edu. Space is limited.
