The Tubac Presidio is a central site in the history of the Native-American, Spanish, American Southwest and the quintessential Arizona experience in the town where “art and history meet.” Our Park allows you to explore this spectacular history, bringing relevance and the power of history to today’s global society. We are so grateful for your support in helping the Presidio continue to serve as a cultural, social and intellectual hub for Southern Arizona.
The Tubac Center of the Arts is located at the main intersection in the village and offers a full range of arts programming and seasonal exhibits that are not to be missed. Tubac Center of the Arts offers changing nationally juried art exhibitions, opportunities for artists to exhibit their work, art workshops, lectures, a performing arts series, special events, and a children’s summer arts program.
The Tubac Historical Society was conceived of in the fall of 1967 by a group of concerned citizens who wanted to save the Old Tubac Schoolhouse, which had been built in 1885, and was the school attended by local students well into the 1960’s. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the Tubac School is a popular attraction located on the grounds of the Tubac Presidio State Park and Museum. Since it’s conception, The Tubac Historical Society has established itself as a critical custodian of the history of Tubac and the Santa Cruz River Valley. This history is made available to the public in our Brownell Research Center, located at the Tubac Community Center in Tubac, or online, via our online catalog. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about The Tubac Historical Society.
The mission of the Tubac Nature Center is to provide education, and to enhance appreciation for the Santa Cruz River and its environment in the Tubac and the Santa Cruz County area.
FOSCR was formed in 1991 to “ensure a continued flow of the river’s surface waters, promote the highest river water quality achievable, and to protect and restore the riparian ecosystem and diversity of life supported by the river’s waters.” Our non-profit, all-volunteer group focuses on the portion of the river from its headwaters in the San Rafael Valley in Arizona, south into Mexico, and then north to through Santa Cruz County, AZ to the Pima County line. We work with riverside landowners, government agencies, and other citizens and community groups to keep the river flowing, its banks clean and green, and its environment bountiful to both wildlife and people. The river has no water or land rights. So it is up to us, who care about its survival, to advocate for it, to be a voice for the Santa Cruz.
