Arizona is the only state in the Union that has been documented as having Africanized bees in every single county. The story of Africanized bees in Arizona is very much a story about the Southwest, and its distinct differences from the rest of the United States. The bees show us that we are living and have lived for a very long time in a complex zone of “mestizaje”, where cultural and biological differences originating in several different continents (especially the Americas, Africa, and Europe) are conflicting and coming together. By considering this species thoughtfully, we learn who we are. This program is included with the standard park entry fee, $7 per adult (14+) $4 per youth (6-13). However, seating is limited and reservations are required. Call Red Rock State Park at (928) 282-6907 to reserve your seats in the theater.
