Looking for something fun to do this weekend?

Come to beautiful Green Valley Park in Payson this Saturday, May 13, for the 23rd annual Payson Wildlife Festival. Hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and admission is FREE.

Parents and kids can fish, play games and get a close-up look at wildlife, including birds of prey, rattlesnakes, Gila monsters, and more. There will be booths from a variety of conservation and sporting groups.

Green Valley Lake will receive more than double its usual stocking of trout in preparation for this event. No fishing license is required for festival attendees, and equipment and bait can be borrowed from the free fishing booth.

The Payson Wildlife Festival is a cooperative event between the Arizona Game and Fish Department, Mogollon Sporting Association, US Forest Service and Payson Parks & Recreation Department.
