Welcome to the  Wild Outdoor World of Arizona!

If your desire is a respite from the ‘human-centric’ paradigm, we are here for you. WOW Arizona! is tucked into the western flank of the Santa Catalina Mountain foothills on a three acre nature preserve. Our secluded location offers a natural escape. When you are here, The Wild Outdoor World of Arizona is at your doorstep.

“Let’s Go Outside…”

About us

We are your hosts, MaryEllen & C.J., the founders of The Wild Outdoor World of Arizona, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. We have been engaged in habitat restoration for over twenty years at our location 20 miles north of Tucson, Arizona.


Our pathways and patios offer world-class birdwatching and photography opportunities. We depart ‘from the doorstep’ hiking and mountain biking trails, winding through the Santa Catalina Mountains and down from Mt.Lemmon.


“Immersion in nature”… our B&B offers two private rooms, with additional space for small groups. We are also the perfect natural and color -filled setting for small intimate weddings, life celebrations and low-key gatherings.


We spend a lot of time outdoors. We do our best to respond immediately to calls and inquiries as quickly as possible. When viewing wildlife or with a guest tour, our devices are muted, please leave a message, text or email for us.

Please help us care for the creatures!
