Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area

Description:

The Colorado River crossing at Yuma, Arizona, has a rich history, accented in recent years by irrigation works that have transformed the region into an agricultural oasis. But in the process, riparian areas suffered and the riverfront became blighted. Today, Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area is working to restore the region's wetlands and reconnect the city to its historic downtown riverfront.

Directions:

Yuma is located just off Interstate 8, halfway between San Diego and Phoenix. Yuma is served by US Airways (Phoenix) and United Airlines (Los Angeles).

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
