TOURS & EVENTS
EXPERIENCE OUR SANCTUARY
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:
Guided tours of our wildlife sanctuary for groups up to 10 people.
EVERY THIRD SATURDAY
This open-house style event geared toward families with children under the age of 5 is a great alternative for our Walk with Wildlife tours. Bring the whole squad!
Friday nights from March-October, visit our sanctuary in the evening twilight!
Looking for fun, safe, outdoor events for your family to give back and celebrate the seasons? Join in for one or more of the Wild Enrichment Parties at Southwest Wildlife monthly on Saturdays at 10:00 AM. Space is extremely limited. Book today!
Join AZ Game and Fish Department biologist Jeff Meyers and SWCC staff on Zoom for monthly educational talks from the comfort of your own home!
Release your inner wild as you practice yoga near Mexican gray wolves, great horned owls, Harris's hawks, and more. Then enjoy light refreshments and a mini-tour after class!
Guided evening tours. Refreshments provided.
Tour our wildlife sanctuary with your students to learn how to safely coexist with native Arizona wildlife. Small groups get an up-close view of Southwest Wildlife as we share the compelling stories of our sanctuary residents.
Part philanthropy, part special event, this immersive dinner program for 8 to 10 people is a unique opportunity. Exclusive access to the sanctuary provides a private experience like no other.
