“WoW Arizona is an absolute hotspot for birding in southeast Arizona and word is destined to get out at some point. The ongoing grassland restoration efforts, prime location, and continued efforts by the caretakers to plant a variety of plants that attract and feed birds and wildlife of all sorts put the site on par with any other destination birding location in the region.”
Jonathan Horst, Restoration Biologist

WOWAZ has been restoring native habitat in the Sonoran desert for twenty years. As a result, many species of birds that are declining elsewhere thrive here. Bunchgrass and wildflower meadows entice ground-dwelling birds to nest. Our 70 feeders and water sources provide the rest of what our birds need to survive and successfully reproduce.
We welcome visitors who want to bird the paths and verdant gardens of our three-acre oasis. Small private groups can usually be hosted with one day’s notice (and sometimes on the same day). ALL first time visitors are REQUIRED to have a quick walk through our pathways prior to being allowed to roam freely. The walks ends on the hummingbird patio, where more than 25 feeders bring the birds within arm’s reach. A $10 donation per person is required to assist to fill 44 hummingbird feeders, 30 other mixed seed/suet feeders and help support our habitat work. Guided walks are available for $20 per person and last approximately 1.5 hours. We also offer a late afternoon and sunset guided walk, which concludes over a glass (or two) of our handmade artisan wine as we watch and listen while evening descends.
We are a small establishment that has worked for over twenty years to create an oasis for birds.
