WOW Arizona! is tucked into the western flank of the Santa Catalina Mountain foothills on a three acre nature preserve. Our secluded location is filled with birds, flowers and native wildlife. When you are here, the Wild Outdoor World of Arizona is at your doorstep.

Paths wind amongst restored habitat with comfortable seating throughout the grounds. Lighted Hummingbird Patios are excellent for relaxing at the end of the day, a fire flickering in the chiminea.




Your Hosts

Special Education Teacher
Having immediate access to nature is one of the ways MaryEllen resets from her multi-task world. She loves a good hike as well as simple ‘smell the flowers’ paced mountain bike rides. A teacher of ‘at-risk’ children in Tucson, it is a great passion that comes with challenges as well as rewards. The birds absolutely love the suet that she makes, filling the feeders through the day.

Nonprofit Director, Naturalist, Medicinal Cannabis Expert
Sharing the outdoors with guests is one of the highlights of C.J.’s day. Enamored with the wildlife of the southwest since his first encounter, his fascination has not waned in almost three decades. Conversations are often halted for, “listen, what’s that”? An expert in medicinal cannabis, he has given multiple lectures at doctor’s offices and physical therapy locations in the Tucson area.

Please Support Wildlife

Our location supports wildlife through extensive habitat restoration, providing nesting and shelter sites for all of the creatures. We have an abundance of feeding stations, with over EIGHTY hummingbird, suet, thistle, black oil sunflower and mixed seed feeders in different zones. Please help us! Your tax deductible donation will help us fill and replace feeders.
