Our park, like most places (even your home) offers unique experiences for watching wildlife. We all have the amazing opportunity to view animals as they live and interact with each other in their natural homes.
Thanks to our Wildlife Viewing Collaborators, we are developing a wildlife viewing area with two interpretative displays providing tips and guidelines. This project was supported by a grant from the Arizona Community Foundation.
The Collaborators are listed on the right.
The two displays below will be the interpretative displays in the wildlife viewing area by the picnic area along the bank of the pond.
- Arizona Game and Fish Department - Jeff Meyers and CheyenneTowne
- Audubon Southwest - Tice Supplee
- Audubon Prescott - Cory Shaw and Karen Schuster
- Individual Supporters - Amber Gore and Eileen Baden
- Black Canyon Heritage Park - Bob Cothern and Ann Hutchinson
- Upper Agua Fria Watershed Partnership - Mary Hoadley
Observing wildlife in their natural environment can offer an enjoyable, exhilarating, and enlightening experience, brimming with awe and exploration.
Responsible wildlife observation not only safeguards the well-being of the wildlife but also ensures your own safety.
