GRASSLAND FAIR at Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge
Saturday, November 16, 10 am - 3:30 pm
In a landscape of sweeping grasslands and majestic Baboquivari Peak, this free festival offers fun, food, and learning about nature and wildlife. The Greg Morton Band, an award-winning bluegrass group, will get your feet tapping! Professor Walt Anderson presents The Call of the Wild, with beautiful images about getting close to nature. Sergio Avila of Sky Island Alliance will speak on Jaguars in the Borderlands. The magnificent jaguar is occasionally seen in this area. Tucson Mountain Hummingbird Rescue shows us about hummingbird rescue and care. See nature exhibits in the visitor center and outdoor demonstrations up close of live birds of prey, reptiles, amphibians, “desert creepy crawlies” and the endangered masked bobwhite quail. Of special interest is the return of the Colonial Spanish Horse breed that developed on this former ranch. See and touch these beautiful, friendly horses. Nature organizations and conservation agencies are represented, and there are ongoing activities for kids. Imitate your favorite animal by joining the Wildlife Calling Contest. Take archery lessons, or climb into a big fire truck!  Plenty of delicious regional foods and talented local arts and crafts. Enjoy live bluegrass music throughout the event. Free admission, dogs welcome leashed. The event is at the Refuge Visitor Center.
