    Wildlife Fair in Prescott

    From AZGFD:

    Game and Fish to host wildlife fair in Prescott Valley on April 10

    The Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Region III office will host its annual wildlife fair for the public from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, April 10, at the Bradshaw Mountain East Freshman campus, 6411 Robert Road in Prescott Valley, Ariz.

    The fair, free to all, will feature live animals, wildlife education, interactive games, and free giveaways. This is a one-night only event.

    “This is a great event for everyone,” said Zen Mocarski, public information officer for the Region III office. “Teachers, students, and the general public can all enjoy the event. Game and Fish staff and law enforcement will be available to answer questions, and other agencies and organizations will attend as well.”

    Mocarski said there will be live birds, mammals, several species of rattlesnake, and a number of other wildlife. Game and Fish will also have interactive hunting and fishing games and a number of educational booths. Free giveaways will include items such as posters, brochures, and booklets.

    The fair, however, will not be limited to the Game and Fish Department. Slated to participate at the event are: Arizona Trappers Association, Arizona State Parks, the Arizona Desert Bighorn Sheep Society, Prescott Audubon Society, Prescott National Forest, Prescott Sportsmen’s Club, and Yavapai Big Brother and Big Sisters.

    Although designed for youth, many of the exhibits will be of interest to adults.

    “It’s a good time for everyone,” said Mocarski. “We’ll have a lot of educational material on a variety of topics.

    “As Arizona’s population continues to grow, it’s important for adults and youth to have an understanding of wildlife: the behavior of animals, their value, and potential risks of specific human behaviors.”

    There will be some photographic opportunities, so anyone interested is welcome to bring a camera.
