Hi...JB of MonarchQuestAZ(WingsWarrior)....posted a flyer informing and encouraging people who might be able to enjoy spotting AZ-tagged monarchs. Not technically a review, but a valuable contribution that may enrich people's experience at the park. Everything i do is strictly out-of-pocket--not a commercial enterprise! So...how do I contact AMSP? (your phone doesn't work). Would really appreciate Park staff contacting me: (520)861-0646(preferred) Thank you!.........Cheers, JB
