    Verde River DaySaturday, September 28, 2019 - 9AM to 3PM
    Dead Horse Ranch State Park, Cottonwood



    Come one - come all to celebrate our river!

    Verde River Day promotes preservation and care of the environment by showcasing informative exhibits on the Verde's riparian habitat. There will be 30+ nature-based exhibits, kid's play area, sandcastle building, canoe rides (with or without assistance), free fishing clinic put on by AZ Game & Fish Department from 7:00AM to NOON in the freshly stocked lagoon, and more!

    Local food vendors will keep you fed (cash only) and there will be non-stop entertainment on the stage.

    We are still looking for sponsors and nature-based exhibitors. If you are interested, please go here for more information and to register. There is no charge for exhibitors.

    This event is free to all to promote our amazing river, the last free-flowing river in Arizona. It is funded by generous organizations and non-profits who share the vision of keeping our river and its habitat vibrant and healthy.
