Looking for a fun, safe, outdoor event for your family to give back to others this season? Bring your group of up to six people and come join the Holiday Enrichment Party at Southwest Wildlife on Saturday, December 2nd from 10:00 AM - Noon. 

"Enrichment" is a wildlife management term describing special, unique activities and treats that encourage sanctuary animals to have fun, exhibit wild behaviors, and make their days more interesting. Celebrate the holidays with our Animal Care specialists and knowledgeable Trail Guides and give back to our native Arizona wildlife.

Each table at this event will work on a themed holiday enrichment project. Past projects have included special tubes full of scents and treats, boxes of treats covered ribbons and bows, special bear pies, and more! Once all projects are complete, guests will roam the sanctuary with a trained, knowledgeable trail guide and observe the animals enjoying those special treats.

Only 8 tables are available for this event: 4 premium tables, and 4 regular. A premium table allows you to safely enter the animals enclosure and place the enrichment treat yourself. This option is for mountain lions, bears, and coatimundi.  Regular tables will have animals randomly assigned. 

Premium tables are $300 for 6 people, regular tables are $200 for 6 people. 

Each purchased ticket will be good for one table enrichment station. Give a great day to our sanctuary animals while enjoying time together as a group or family!
