Natural Awakenings Metro Phoenix & Northern Arizona

Two Events at Liberty Wildlife

Join Liberty Wildlife and the City of Phoenix Park Rangers on Saturday, February 1, from 8:30 to 10 a.m., for the next of their free walks that occur on the first Saturday of the month until April 6 along the Peace Trail at the Rio Salado, in Phoenix. Learn about the history of this urban wildlife zone as well as its future with the Rio Reimagined project in the works, and see native wildlife and plants species. Expect to walk about 2 miles for about 90 minutes (it all depends on what is seen). Bring a refillable water bottle, sturdy shoes and a pair of binoculars if you have them. Participants are asked to meet at Liberty Wildlife at 8:30 a.m. Times are subject to change as temperature rises and may be cancelled due to inclement weather.

Join Liberty Wildlife again on Saturday, February 15, from noon to 6 p.m., for another Sippin’ the Spirit of the Southwest event benefiting Liberty Wildlife. This time attendees will be enjoying the tastes and sounds of a good old country-and-western cookout (vegetarian options will be available as well). There will be a variety of spirits from the Southwest, games, raffles, live music and more.

Location: 2600 E. Elwood St., Phoenix. For more information, including upcoming ticket information for Sippin’ the Spirit of the Southwest, visit
