Gallery: Verde River Day 2012
Verde River Day returned on Saturday with an abundance of nature themed activities for the whole family to enjoy. Arizona State Parks waived park entrance fees for all visitors attending the event held at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood. All games, exhibits and diversions were offered at no cost, thanks to many exhibitors and sponsors. Verde River Day promotes preservation and care of the environment by showcasing informative exhibits on the Verde's unique riparian habitat. Some of the day's events included a Sculptural Hands on Earth's Art Gallery, climbing wall, organized canoe and kayak rides, sand castle building, and nature-based exhibits. Local groups, such as the Mountain View Prep Unicycle Club, used the event to reach out to the community. Guests were welcome to fish in the lagoon loaded with hundreds of pounds of catfish. Poles, bait and tackle were provided for all ages and no fishing license was required.
