Internet

The Seminar Room, Education Building, and laboratories are wired with ADSL (internet). We also have a computer room that you may use. Free wireless is available in most open areas around the Station such as the porches outside the rooms, the pool, and at most picnic tables scattered around the grounds. Wireless may not be available in most rooms because of their construction. However, many guests are able to connect to the WiFi after opening a window or taking the device outside to connect, and bringing it back into the room. We do not guarantee the wireless connection will be available at all times. Heavy rains and other adverse conditions can sometimes interfere with the wireless. You are welcome to bring a laptop and use the wireless feed when it is available (about 90% of the time) in the areas mentioned above.

Wildlife

Cave Creek Canyon is home to hundreds of species of birds, as well as numerous mammals and reptiles. Click here for more information.

Hummingbird Monitoring Network

From mid-April to mid-September the SWRS partners with the HMN and bands hummingbirds every two weeks. If you are interested in participating or just observing, please call 520-558-2396 for the days we will be banding this year.
