A Wild Party

Unfolding over 122 acres in Edgewood, Wildlife West Nature Park is an environmental education center. It is home to a variety of rescued native critters—mountain lions, black bears, javelinas, pronghorn antelope, bobcats, wolves, elk, deer, foxes, raccoons and various birds of prey—that, due to injury or otherwise, cannot live in the wild. The park focuses on creating enclosures that mimic natural habitats and keep animals as healthy as possible. It contains ample nature trails and observation areas, and it offers a wealth of educational programs. In sum, it’s a neat place.

Only 20 minutes east of Albuquerque (in the mountains where it’s 10 degrees cooler) Wildlife West is also equipped with venue facilities and hosts regular events. Beginning on Friday, July 29, and running through Sunday, July 31, is the biggest of the year: The ninth Wildlife West Music Festival. The three-day fest features two shaded stages (attendees will not be sitting in the sun, promoters say) and more than a dozen performing acts of the acoustic persuasion—bluegrass, Western swing, old time and folk, to name a few. Featured performers this year are the Hot Club of Cowtown, Chuck Pyle, Finnders and Youngberg, and Grayson. There will also be workshops, contests, jam sessions and children’s activities. Free, dry camping is also available.

Admission to Friday evening’s barn dance (with George Bullfrog and the Turquoise Trailers) is $10. Saturday tickets are $25, Sunday is $15, or it’s $35 for a weekend pass. For more information visit
