Welcome to the  Wild Outdoor World of Arizona!
“Let’s Go Outside…”

If your desire is a respite from the ‘human-centric’ paradigm, we are here for you.
Tucked into the western flank of the Santa Catalina Mountain foothills, our secluded location offers a natural escape.
WOW Arizona! is headquartered 20 miles north of the city of Tucson, on a three acre nature preserve, open to the public by appointment.
Visitors are welcomed to come see the gardens, to learn about native plants and wildlife. Please feel free and open to participating in one of our frequent Eco-Events.
When you are here, The Wild Outdoor World of Arizona is at your doorstep.

Streaming ‘Mountain View’ Camera!

We have added streaming wildlife cameras for you to view, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week! Our ‘Mountain View’ Camera looks out at our Main Pollinator Garden, with Samaniego Ridge of the Santa Catalina Mountains as a backdrop.

Cardinals, Pyrrhuloxias, Ladder-backed Woodpeckers, Western Scrub-jays, Curve-billed thrashers, Abert’s Towhees as well as hummingbirds are frequently seen while viewing our camera. We keep the suet full in the morning and refill throughout the day. The evening feed happens about an hour and a half before sunset, and, often quail and many other birds are feeding on the ground.… more



So much happening… This female Round-tailed Ground Squirrel (Spermophilus tereticaudus) is blind in one eye. She has learned there is no threat, turning her blind side, while keeping her other side towards real danger. Always speaking softly to her, so she knows of my presence, she goes about her life, eating the fruit of a Gray Thorn (Zizyphus obtusifolia).  The Rock Squirrels (Spermophilus variegatus) were quite flirtatious, displaying and courting.

Wildlife continues to frequent our place, with birds nesting, fledging, migrating, lizards emerging…Wild Outdoor World of Arizona! New prints to compliment the new walls and windows have been professionally printed. Unfortunately, we are going to have to re-order quite a few of these, as B&B guests quickly ‘snapped’ them up for their walls! Speaking of new, we have upgraded our ‘portals to the great outdoors’ and created a new winter/inclement weather ‘Wildlife Viewing Area’. Already a preferred place for sipping tea in the early morning or watching the sunset over Samaniego Ridge.  Our ‘Breakfast Nook’ has… more
