  At a recent meeting in Oracle, one gentleman stated that Oracle State Park was closed.  As of March 1 of this year, the Park is open 7 days a week!  The Park opens at 7 am for hikers, bikers, etc and at 9 am the Kannally Ranch House and office are open. The Park closes at 5 pm.    Picnicking, hiking, biking, horseback riding are always available.  Special events, talks, music are all updated on the Oracle State Park website and weekly in the San Manuel Miner. Bring your friends, family, dogs on leash and come enjoy YOUR special Park.

Editor’s Note: Here is one of the events available this month at the Oracle State Park. They can usually be found listed in the weekly Que Pasa.

Sunday, Dec. 17, 1 p.m., Bighorn Basics

Many of the tools we use can be compared to the tools the Bighorn Sheep use to survive in mountainous areas of Arizona. Also, learn more about the Bighorn Sheep Reintroduction Program and recent releases of sheep into the Catalina Mountains. Free with park admission; reservation suggested.
