Spring has arrived and it is time to get outdoors and explore Arizona’s natural resources.
Check out the Spring Outdoor Festival at Mormon Lake Lodge on Saturday, May 22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The day will be filled with fun activities, including archery, fishing, and self-guided hikes. There will also be information booths from a variety of exhibitors, including the opportunity to see live wildlife, up close and personal, from the Game and Fish Department’s Adobe Mountain Wildlife Center.
“This event is for anyone interested in the outdoors, whether you hunt, fish, enjoy wildlife watching, or are interested in conservation,” says Shelly Shepherd, information and education program manager for the Game and Fish Flagstaff region. “It gives adults and kids the opportunity to meet people who work in wildlife conservation and outdoor recreation and learn more about the amazing resources and recreational opportunities our state offers.”
This free one-day event is co-hosted by the Arizona Game and Fish Department and Mormon Lake Lodge. The lodge is located on Main Street at Mormon Lake, about 30 miles southeast of Flagstaff off Lake Mary Road.
During the festival, make sure you stop in the Kachina Room at the lodge and catch one of the talks given every hour. Topics will include wildlife photography, Hopi wildlife and traditions, Arizona trails, bighorn sheep in Arizona, and a fun topic from Willowbend Environmental Center.
