Verde River Day

Saturday, September 24th, 2022
9:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Dead Horse Ranch State Park
Cottonwood, AZ

One of the most popular events at Verde River Day is paddling a canoe around the lagoon. For many, it’s a first experience exploring aquatic life from above. Children, old and young, peer with delight into the clear waters of the lagoon, searching for trout, catfish, and sunfish and with luck, catching a glimpse of a sunbathing turtle.

We are in need of volunteers for this event. If you would like to volunteer, please see our flyer about volunteer opportunities and volunteer contact.
