These murals pay homage to the flora and fauna that once flourished along San Pedro Creek. Thousands of years ago, this creek was home to bison, deer, and antelope, as well as animals that are now extinct, like mastodons and dire wolves. Wild plants provided fruits, nuts, roots, and berries to the native people. When the first Spanish explorers arrived and beheld San Pedro Creek centuries ago, they were struck by its abundance of natural resources and beauty. The creek was considered lush, abundant, and ripe with potential.
