Located just 60 miles south of Nogales, Magdalena de Kino has been honored as a Pueblo Magico, a special designation bestowed by the Mexican federal government because of its high level of historic and cultural significance to the nation. Just far enough away from the border, this tour provides an opportunity to take in the serene provincial charm of distinctively regional Sonora. The community is the terminus of an internationally famous pilgrimage route that spans both the United States and Mexico. This tour includes both a look back to the past and a glance at the contemporary challenges of a small Mexican city as well as a visit to neighboring San Ignacio to visit one of the Jesuit black robe Eusebio Francisco Kino's first missions founded at the end of the 17th century.

  • Free
Wynne Brown will present a glimpse into the life, letters, and recently re-discovered botanical illustrations of Sara Plummer Lemmon — for whom Tucson’s Mount Lemmon is named. Perched at the intersection of science and art in the Arizona Territory, Sara’s story is one of curiosity, tenacity, and grit.


Wynne spent six years as a reporter and copy editor at a mid-size daily newspaper and has also written for many other publications. She is the author of the award-winning books, More Than Petticoats: Remarkable Arizona Women and The Falcon Guide to Trail Riding Arizona, and the co-editor of Cave Creek Canyon: Revealing the Heart of Arizona’s Chiricahua Mountains.

Her biography of Sara Lemmon is close to completion.
