Celebrate the Arizona Trail at the Annual Meeting!

Saturday, February 4
South Mountain Environmental Education Center
Phoenix, AZ

Make your reservations today for the Arizona Trail Association's Annual Meeting on Saturday, February 4. This gathering of ATA friends is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the Arizona National Scenic Trail. You'll hear about exciting developments within the ATA, review successes of 2016, and learn more about what's in store for the year ahead. And you might meet a few new hiking, biking and riding partners that share the same interests as you. You won't find a better collection of folks, unless you're on the Arizona Trail itself.

We'll enjoy a catered lunch at the South Mountain Environmental Education Center in South Phoenix. Tickets are $25 per person and are available via PayPal. Please register today, and join us on Saturday, February 4 to share your love for the Arizona National Scenic Trail.

The meeting will feature an afternoon presentation on rattlesnakes from Bryan Hughes, a herpetologist and photographer, field researcher, and a regular speaker at regional parks throughout Arizona. He is the owner of Rattlesnake Solutions, a rattlesnake-focused conservation and education business in Arizona, which is responsible for the safe relocation of over 900 rattlers.

AZT Commemorative Mugs

Commemorative Mug Working with the nation's best pottery artists at Deneen Pottery in Minnesota, we are delighted to announce the first in a series of six commemorative mugs celebrating the natural beauty of the Arizona National Scenic Trail. The first mug in the series features a scene from within the Gila River Canyons (Passage 16), which is where the final piece of trail was constructed to officially complete the AZT in December of 2011. The dominant rock spire is an unnamed volcanic plug we have been a affectionately referring to as Dale's Butte - in honor or Dale Shewalter, the father of the Arizona Trail. Saguaro forests cover the hills and Mexican gold poppies can be seen blooming near the trail. Since desert bighorn sheep frequent this part of the AZT, a ram is included within the design. We chose a natural brown glaze for this particular mug, which will hold about 12 ounces of coffee, tea, cocoa, whiskey, water or whatever else you fancy. AZT Mugs are available as a "thank you gift" for anyone joining the ATA or renewing their membership at the Ironwood, Saguaro, Juniper or Ponderosa Pine levels...while supplies last.

Donations to the organization greater than $100 will also get you a mug as a "thank you" gift. Please help us reach our fundraising goals in 2017 by joining the ATA by clicking here or donating here.
