Please be aware that Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC) is not open to the public without an appointment or an event reservation. All tours, visits, and donation drop-offs must be scheduled in advance.

Read our complete COVID-19 protocols here.
In light of current CDC guidelines, fully vaccinated people are cleared to be outside without masks among other fully vaccinated people with less risk. As all visits to SWCC are entirely outdoors, masks are no longer required for fully vaccinated guests. We will not be asking any guest for proof of vaccination, and being vaccinated does not fully prevent COVID-19 contraction. To curb some of this risk, we are continuing to limit the size of our tour groups as noted above and encouraging a six-foot social distance between families/groups who have traveled together on tours. If you are concerned about contracting COVID-19, you are welcome to request your Trail Guide wear a mask, and you are welcome to continue to wear a mask to protect others as well. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home. We will reschedule your tour for a later date at no cost.

Southwest Wildlife offers educational programs onsite at our sanctuary in northeast Scottsdale. Here are some of the programs we offer: 

To register for any of these programs, click the Book Now button on any of our experience pages linked above. Please note these programs are services provided by SWCC and therefore not considered tax deductible donations.

We look forward to seeing you!
