Hop on your own ATV on this off-roading adventure in the Sonoran Desert. After a safety briefing and training, gear up and ride across rugged, rocky trails in the scenic Bradshaw Mountains, as well as cross the Agua Fria River.

We dropped by the center and were impressed by the building as both display and education center. It opens of plantings of native species and provides access to the Salt River and riparian wetland. While there, an elementary class was happily engaged with a docent, learning about the environment and local species of birds, mammals, insects, and plants. Come early and bring binoculars. Visit the store and support Audubon's important work.

This center has done a great job of cleaning up the Salt Rivee and creating a wildlife habitat just a few miles from downtown Phoenix. Excellent, easy opportunity for wildlife education in the heart of the city. And a restoration project that is restoring a portion of the river to what it used to be when Phoenix was founded.

The building is beautiful and the grounds are decent but we were very uncomfortable while we were walking around since we were afraid of being accosted by the homeless people who inhabit the river bed. We went to three of the locations - Central (where we could see and hear them hanging out and saw quite a bit of trash while taking a short walk,) 7th Avenue south of the river (where three different people were wandering around pushing their carts of junk,) and 7th Avenue north of the river (where I stayed in the locked car and my husband took a short stroll. He hurried back after seeing a person passed out/sleeping on a bench under the shelter and saw a backpack outside of the men's restroom.) It was impossible to enjoy a relaxing walk communing with nature. Someone working at the main building told us a ranger would be dispatched immediately if anything happened and there are signs all over about not leaving anything valuable in the car. It was VERY SCARY! I would not recommend going there unless you are with a large group - definitely not a place for a single person or couple to enjoy watching the birds and animals.

What a terrific visit! They offered a very educational and fun event when we visited (10/20) which kids dressed up in their Halloween outfits and learned about animals in this part of country. A few animals were brought from Zoo (owls/ferret/snakes) so kids and adults could have an interactive experience. It was a treat to hike the trails in the dark with flashlights. Please go and support the Audubon & this community treasure!

My nephew has done the spring break camp and this will be his second time doing the summer break camp. He LOVES it. He is kept very busy and best of all, he learns a lot about the environment, animals and how important everything is. They have full day activities, so you can drop them off in the morning and pick them up at 4pm, so it's great if you have to work as well.
