Southwest Wildlife offers Special Events virtually and at the sanctuary in Scottsdale, Arizona throughout the year. From child-friendly Family Day to educational speakers, we have something for everyone! 

Join us this year for a holiday gathering, family outing, or an enrichment party for the animals. 

Space is limited - plan ahead and book your event tickets today! If all dates are full, make sure to join our waitlist. If a cancellation occurs and a spot opens, you will be automatically notified and given the opportunity to sign up. 

Looking to come for a tour? We offer them year round - check out our daytime and evening options! 

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. In addition, we have a 24-hour cancellation policy.

We always recommend driving yourself to our events as Uber, Lyft, and taxi services tend not to be reliable in far North Scottsdale.

Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center reserves the right to cancel programs at its discretion. Programs will run as scheduled, regardless of weather, unless participants are contacted directly by Southwest Wildlife staff. Cancellation or rescheduling must be requested at least 24 hours before the event. If given less than 24-hour notice, the registration fee will be kept as a donation to support the care of the animals at Southwest Wildlife. Please contact the education department if you need to cancel, reschedule, or manage your program registration: email or phone in your request at (480) 471-3621.

We look forward to seeing you!
