Wilderness Safety Festival
Join the Southwest Wildlife Foundation, Utah Canyon Outdoors, SUU Garth and Jerri Frehner Museum of Natural History and the Dixie National Forest Service for our Wilderness Safety Festive on Saturday August 26th from 10am to 3pm! Meet Reptile Animal Ambassadors, go on a nature walk and learn how to identify native plants and animal tracks, learn about fire safety with Smokey Bear, and slot canyon and hiking safety with the experts! Don’t miss out on fun for the whole family! Donations made to the Southwest Wildlife Foundation and participation in these events will add your name to awesome drawings where you can win exciting wilderness gear and other prizes!
Meet us at the Cedar Canyon Nature Park campfire area in Cedar City. Go east on Center Street and head up the canyon for about 1.5 miles. You will find our parking area located on the right hand side of the highway next to a fenced rehab yard and just before Rusty’s Steak House. See you there!
5K Wilderness Fun Run
The Southwest Wildlife Foundation is having a 5K Wilderness Fun Run Fundraiser to raise money for projects at the Cedar Canyon Nature Park. The 5K will cost $10 per person to participate and every participant will be provided with water, fresh fruit, and have their name put into a drawing for a variety of exciting prizes collected for us by Utah Canyon Outdoors! If you would like to donate, but would like to opt out of the Fun Run, you can still be entered into our prize drawings! If you love the outdoors as much as we do, you won’t want to miss out on this opportunity.
There will also be some fun educational booths set up for our Wilderness Safety Festival from 10am to 3pm at the Cedar Canyon Nature Park. Free and fun for the whole family!
