Dead Horse Ranch State Park will host Verde River Day on Saturday, September 28, 2019.  This is an action packed day where you can learn how to fish, go for a canoe or kayak ride, climb a wall, take a bird walk and build a sand castle. All for free!  Arizona State Parks is waiving park entrance fees to Dead Horse Ranch.  If you have never been to Dead Horse Ranch because of the fee, here is your chance to see what you have been missing.

Starting at 8am, the fish will start biting.  Poles, bait and supplies will be available to everyone for no charge and no fishing license is necessary until noon.

The live entertainment will be wonderful too.  Verde Valley Voices, Cottonwood Community Band, the Jerome Ukulele Orchestra will perform throughout the day.

Pancakes, hamburgers, hotdogs and snacks will be available for purchase.

Verde River Day was started in 1989 to bring awareness to the Verde River’s riparian habitat.  This year, Friends of the Verde River is cohosting the event.

Dead Horse Ranch is located at 675 Dead Horse Ranch Road in Cottonwood, Arizona.  For more information, check out the Verde River Day website at http://www.verderiverday.com
