April 2014


Dear Friends –

Happy spring, everyone!  Here’s some brief information to catch you all up about what your board has been busy doing and to let you know about our upcoming events.  Please mark your calendars and come spend some time with us up at Carr House.  We’re looking forward to seeing you all this season!

We are again extremely fortunate to have Mike Foster as our Carr House host this year.  Mike has lots of information to share with visitors and is a super asset to our organization!

Judy Phillips and Jane Chambers have come up with yet another wonderful lineup of programs for this season, the first of which will be Sunday, May 4, starting at 1:30 p.m. at Carr House (see below for a complete listing of programs and dates).


 The gate to the Carr House parking lot will be open on Easter Sunday (April 20), beginning at 9 a.m. so that you and your family can enjoy the day hiking and picnicking in the area.  (Carr House will not be open that day.)



 The house will open for the season on Saturday, April 26.  Open hours will be Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  We encourage you to bring your family and friends up to spend a day hiking, bird watching, looking through the great exhibits in the house, and enjoying a picnic on the patio under the trees.

 Did you know…?

  • We have been host to over 100 children from Palominas and Sierra Vista Public Schools. They have participated in activities in the meadow and at Carr House.
  • FOHM has been a partner in the CAT team addressing multi-use in Hunter and Ash Canyon. Our US Forest Service liaison, Peggy Wilson, has been very responsive to the needs at Carr House and the meadow.  We sincerely appreciate the continued support of the Sierra Vista Ranger District!
