The Nature Conservancy’s Hassayampa River Preserve will host its monthly interpretive nature walk from 8:30 to 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 26.
Nature enthusiasts of all ages might spot a fox, javelina, or Western bluebird as they enjoy an easy walk along the preserve’s trails and learn about the plants, animals and birds that inhabit this spectacular streamside habitat.
After the walk participants can explore additional trails on their own, stroll through the demonstration garden, and view the nature displays in the visitor center.
Reservations are required. Call (928) 684-2772 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org to make reservations or for more information.
The preserve is open to the public 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.
Admission fees are $5 per person, $3 for Conservancy members. Kids 12 and under and Friends of the Hassayampa members are free.
The 770-acre Hassayampa River Preserve is located on Highway 60 three miles southeast of Wickenburg at milepost 114. It was created in 1987 to protect a rare desert cottonwood/willow streamside habitat that attracts more than 280 species of birds annually and supports diverse plant and animal communities.
