Nature Opportunities

Southern Arizona and the San Pedro Valley offer some of the best bird watching areas in the world. Not only are there many species of birds and waterfowl, but there are many varieties of mammals, reptiles and plant life. The San Pedro River flows north out of Mexico and attracts a large number of diverse wildlife to its wetlands. It is one of the last undeveloped riparian areas left in the United States and most of it still looks like it did 100 years ago!

Benson is centrally-located in Cochise County, and makes a good home base to explore the wonders of the area. Benson  has its own Waterfowl Viewing Pond. To find the Waterfowl Viewing Pond, take Ocotillo Road north past Interstate 10 to Darby Road, and turn right while following the Watchable Wildlife signs. Click the Benson Birding Trail map on the right side of this page to download a map of the site.
