Tucson Wildlife Center will hold an open house on Saturday, Nov. 11, for the first time since the COVID pandemic began in 2019.

The state-of-the-art wildlife rescue hospital and rehabilitation center is celebrating its 25th year. To mark the occasion, it will have a variety of activities for kids, including “rescue” simulations using stuffed animals, crafts, face-painting and refreshments.

The open house runs from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The wildlife center is the only rescue hospital of its kind in Southern Arizona, according to press materials.

Stuffed animals and crafts are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first-served basis. The wildlife center is on the far east side, 13275 E. Speedway.
