November 28, 2011

ASU’s Deer Valley Rock Art Center celebrates the New Year with specially scheduled guided tours for the public, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., Jan. 7, 14, 21 and 28.

Join our educators for a guided tour of the petroglyph trail, nature preserve and museum. Tours are included with regular admission: $7 adults, $4 seniors and $3 children. Children 5 and younger are free. Ask for an additional 10 percent off for AAA members.

The Deer Valley Rock Art Center has the largest concentration of Native American petroglyphs in the Phoenix Valley. Visitors hike a quarter-mile trail to view more than 1,500 petroglyphs made between 500 and 7,000 years ago. The museum aims to promote preservation, connection and respect for the site and is a destination for families to learn about archaeology in their own backyard.

The center is managed by one of the top archaeology programs in the country – the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at ASU.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., on Sunday. More information is available at or by calling (623) 582-8007
