Base and Meridian Wildlife Area | Feb. 26- Mar. 2, 2020
Base and Meridian Wildlife area is a rare and beautiful riparian area at the confluence of the Salt River and the Gila River just west of Phoenix, Arizona. Managed for waterfowl, riparian values and opportunities for recreation, the area has been experiencing impacts ranging from user conflicts to illegal target shooting, water resource impacts and damage to sensitive riparian vegetation.
*The Base and Meridian Wildlife Area is located on the ancestral lands of the Hohokam, Akimel O’odham (Upper Pima), Yavapai, O’odham and possibly other tribes*
