Arivaca, Arizona, Buenos Aires, film festival, Independent film, National Wildlife Refuge, United States
The Buenos Aires (meaning “good breeze”) National Wildlife Refuge is located near the town of Arivaca in Arizona. This magnificent Refuge is host to more than 330 bird species; birders from across the United States visit the refuge. The refuge is the home to many raptors as well as mule deer, pronghorns, coyote, foxes, bobcats, and javelina, and is the “largest ungrazed grassland in southern Arizona.” We paid a visit to the Refuge during our trip to the Arivaca Independent Film Festival. Following are photos captured in the Refuge. Enjoy.
Signage greets visitors to the Refuge.
Entering the Refuge visitors are greeted with an overview of of “Cienega.”
I am sure this old, HUGE, and “magnificent” tree (if it could talk) has many, many stories locked inside its trunk/branches.
An oasis for many birds inside the Refuge.
Alone time in the Refuge – a perfect place to comtemplate!
