Southern Arizona Search and Rescue History Butch Farabee
We are all aware that our local Search and Rescue Association (SARA) cooperates with sheriff's departments to find hikers and climbers who are lost or in trouble. We may even recall that SARA, and SAHC, began after the same tragedy in the Santa Rita mountains in 1958. But there are a lot of rescue stories that preceded the founding of SARA, such as mining tragedies and kidnappings, that stretch back a hundred years. Butch Farabee, a life-long Park ranger involved in many rescues, will discuss historic life-saving events and the lessons learned from then. Come to our last program till the fall for an excellent presentation!
