Kids and Family Day at NMWC

Bring the family to play and explore the wild world at New Mexico Wildlife Center on Saturday, August 17 from 10 am to 2 pm. The event begins with live family-friendly music by award-winning children’s musician Andy Mason ( The day includes ongoing fun and wild hands-on activities involving feathers, bird beaks, animal tracks, and more! Make origami animals, have your face painted, get advice on feeding birds, and build your own bird feeder. Also, there will be a snake identification training designed for kids! Hear about wildlife education programs that NMWC provides for students and families throughout the year. Snacks available, and bring-your-own picnic is encouraged. This is a FREE event for all ages and includes a chance to see wild Animal Ambassadors and meet some of them close-up! Held at New Mexico Wildlife Center, 19 Wheat St, Espanola. For questions, call us at 505-753-9505.

New Mexico Wildlife Center is a great community resource: it’s a place to bring family, friends, community groups, and visitors from afar; a place where sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals get a second chance to live in the wild; a place that provides wildlife education in and out of the classroom; a place that is not just a place - it is the point of connection between people and wildlife for an abundant tomorrow!
