Wildlife West Nature Park is open all year so you can visit the animals, take a walk on the Birding Trail or bring the kids to the Interactive Trail. Beginning in mid-March a variety of events take place.
Spring time in New Mexico brings wind and sunny skies, creating perfect conditions for our Annual Wind Festival at Wildlife West Nature Park in Edgewood. The skies will be filled with colorful kites of all shapes and sizes throughout the weekend. Visitors can bring their own kite, buy one at the Festival, or watch professional stunt kite fliers maneuver kites expertly in the wind. Visitors can participate in kite flying contests or just fly their kites for fun on large grass fields.
Our Saturday night Chuckwagon Supper Shows are a local favorite. Suppers include a traditional barbecue dinner of brisket and chicken (vegetarian option is always available), wildlife presentation, our unique falcon show, and live music–typically western, bluegrass or an acoustic mix. Shows take place rain or shine in our all-weather amphitheater or our enclosed and heated Bean Barn. Sign up for Park updates. New Mexico can get cool after sunset, so make sure to bring a jacket or other warm garments! Call the park for reservations. Local – (505) 281-7655 Toll-Free – (877) 981-9453
