This event reoccurs on select Saturdays throughout the year.
This family-oriented morning open house is geared toward families with children age 5 and under, though it's fun for all ages. If you have little ones, this is a great alternative to our standard Walk with Wildlife guided tour. At 9:00 AM the sanctuary opens, but it isn't a hard start time. We know how impossible that is with toddlers! Spend as much time as you like strolling, and head home at or before 11:00 AM. (Make sure you arrive with enough time to see what you want to see - we recommend 1 to 1.5 hours.)
Whether you’re an Arizona resident or visiting from out of town, a visit to Southwest Wildlife is a unique opportunity to learn about our magnificent native animals. Our trained, experienced Trail Guides will be stationed at each enclosure to help you get an up-close view of some of our permanent sanctuary animals and share their compelling stories.
On the tour you may see:
- Mountain lions
- Mexican gray wolves
- Mule deer
- Black bears
- Great horned owls
- Red-tailed and Harris’s hawks
