Enjoy The Outdoors At The Family-Friendly Tres Rios Nature & Earth Festival March 5-6 2011
The popular Tres Rios Nature and Earth Festival returns to Estrella Mountain Regional Park from March 5-6.
PHOENIX, AZ – -(Ammoland.com)- Located in a prime riparian area near where the Salt and Agua Fria rivers join the Gila River, the “Three Rivers” Festival emphasizes local animals, plants, ecological relationships and recreational opportunities.
Attendees will be able to see live wildlife up close, go canoeing, try archery, fish, view local birds, hike and learn about recycling and green-living.
A true family event, the Tres Rios Nature and Earth Festival will feature a special area for children with hands-on activities centered around nature, recycling and the outdoors.
A recycling fashion show, live entertainment – including the popular Backporch Bandits bluegrass group – and numerous other features will give the annual event a true festival flavor.
The event is typically held at the Base and Meridian Wildlife Area near the Phoenix International Raceway, but was moved in 2010 and 2011 due to the possibility of heavier than normal water flows down the Gila River.
Activities run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
The festival will be held at 14805 W. Vineyard, 5 ½ miles south of Interstate 10 off of Estrella Parkway. Signs will provide visitors with further directions. The event is free, although a $3 per vehicle entrance fee will be charged by the park. Some children’s rides will also require a small fee.
