Scheduled events:
Distinctively Arizona
Arizona is a magnet for stereotypes, which does a disservice to the complexity and diversity of its history and lesser-known byways. In this session, you're invited to explore the eclectic character of Bisbee, follow the state's Arizona Trail, and learn about the rich and troubled history of Ira Hayes, an Arizona native who famously helped raise the flag at Iwo Jima.
