What’s the perfect way to end your day? Come join a park ranger from Tonto National Monument for an afternoon tour of the Cline Terrace Platform Mound.

Located on Tonto Creek at Roosevelt Lake, the Cline Terrace archaeological site has revealed a fascinating glimpse into the lives and times of prehistoric farming peoples.

Park Ranger Eddie Colyott will discuss ancient farming, natural resource use, and the distinctive characteristics of this site. Come learn how these people survived hundreds of years ago and their relationship to the Tonto Cliff Dwellings and Besh-Ba-Gowah.
