Petroglyphs – those mysterious rock drawings that were carved by the ancestors of today’s Pueblo nations – can be found throughout Arizona. 

On Wednesday, March 20, a representative of ASU’s Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve, will explore the use of the land at the preserve from prehistoric times to the present, providing unique perspectives of this sacred Phoenix landscape.

The prehistoric Hohokam built extensive irrigation and water-control projects in this area – remnants of which can still be seen – and they left their mark in the form of petroglyphs and ceramics. The 47 acre preserve is an archaeology museum and home to nearly 1,600 Native American petroglyphs, the largest concentration in the Phoenix area.

DATE/TIME: Wednesday, March 20, 1-3 p.m.



COST: $20
