WildologyAZ was established in 2013 with the goal to introduce children to a variety of hands-on, outdoor recreational programs and science based activities. These introductory programs have been designed to encourage participants to “take the next step” in furthering their interest and skill level of one or more outdoor activities, or at the least, encourage them to “get outdoors” and better appreciate outdoor recreation, wildlife, wildlife habitat and natural resource conservation.

The mission of WildologyAZ is to create a stronger bond between youth and the natural world.  This mission is met by providing youth with an enjoyable outdoor experience as a platform for educating them on an appreciation of responsible outdoor recreation, wildlife, wildlife habitat and natural resource conservation


Nature is a tool to get children to experience not just the world, but themselves.

“Passion is lifted from the earth itself by the muddy hands of the young; it travels along grass-stained sleeves to the heart. If we are going to save environmentalism and the environment, we must also save an endangered indicator species: the child in nature.”
