On Sunday, October 8, 2023 from 2-4 PM, Cave Creek Museum is excited to welcome Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center as the kickoff presenter for the new season of Kiwanis Family Fun Days.
Come to the Cave Creek Museum for a presentation on the rescue and release efforts of Southwest Wildlife and learn about its sanctuary where animals are housed that can’t be released back into the wild.
Evelyn Johnson, executive director for the museum, says a craft also will be available so kids can create their own wildlife animal. This will be a fun and educational program for children of all ages.
Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center rescues and rehabilitates native wildlife that has been injured, displaced, and orphaned. Once rehabilitated, they are returned to the wild. Sanctuary is provided to animals that cannot be released back to the wild. Educational and humane scientific research opportunities are offered in the field of conservation medicine, including advice on coexisting with wildlife and the importance of native wildlife to healthy ecosystems.
The six Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center stations for presentation are: Saguaro, Scrubby Skin, Geology, Predator and Prey and Archeology. This program is made possible through the kind generosity of Kiwanis Club of Carefree.
The 53-year-old museum’s mission is to preserve the artifacts of the prehistory, history, culture and legacy of the Cave Creek Mining District and the Cave Creek/Carefree foothills area through education, research and interpretive exhibits. Cave Creek Museum is located at 6140 E. Skyline Drive in Cave Creek, Ariz. Open October through May. The museum can be reached at 480.488.2764 or cavecreekmuseum.org. Where History Comes Alive.
