Hoots, Howls, and Hollers 10/13/08

Cool days and evenings are a huge invitation to get outside to greet the out of doors.  At Liberty Wildlife we encourage everyone to take a peek at Nature in her fall splendor.  One way to do this is to join our education group and our wildlife ambassadors at some upcoming outdoor events.  During the next week we have scheduled a number of programs for a variety of organizations.  We are presenting educational programs at two schools, one retirement home, the Desert River Audubon, and a Cub Scout troop.  These appearances are private, but we do have several events that the public is invited to attend.

·      The North Tempe Neighborhood Association and the Tempe Police are sponsoring Picnic in the Park at Tempe Papago Park on October 18 from 3:00-6:00 in the afternoon.

·      Also on October 18th Liberty Wildlife will be participating in the World Water Festival just south of I17 on Central at the Northeast Trailhead at the Rio Salado Habitat Restoration Area.  From 9:00-1:00 we will be discussing the importance of wildlife in a riparian habitat.  We will have an educational booth and give a formal presentation.  The Girl Scouts will be working on the water drop patch. There will be “hands on” activities sponsored by the City of Phoenix Parks, Girl Scouts, SRP, and Phoenix Public Works.

·      On October 25 Liberty’s education team will be participating in a Full Moon Hike at the San Tan Regional Park.  They will present an hour long presentation about desert wildlife preservation starting at 6:00 p.m.  At the end of the presentation the group will be releasing a rehabilitated owl back into the wild.  If you have never participated in a release like this, you may find this a perfect ending to a splendid presentation.

Make a fall resolution to get out of doors more often.  You will be more than delighted at what you see, feel, and learn.  Join our education group at an activity and learn more about our wildlife neighbors.  I’ll make an effort to keep you posted on other Liberty Wildlife activities that are open to the public.
