Carefree Gardens Seminar: Living with urban wildlife

CAREFREE – Living in Arizona we see many species of wildlife from small to large, to flying and four-legged. As natural habitats and native food sources shrink, we see “urban wildlife” adapting to life in our neighborhoods and our yards.


Inviting wildlife into our living space can be enjoyable to observe. Sometimes it can create problems.


On January 12, Carefree Desert Gardens welcomes Darren Julian, an Urban

Wildlife Specialist for Arizona Game and Fish Department, Region 6. With a bachelor’s degree in wildlife conservation biology from Arizona State University, Darren has been with the department for 18 years.


He is frequently called upon to resolve wildlife conflicts statewide.


Learn how to coexist with Arizona’s wildlife in our urban areas. Find out how to prevent problems with wildlife before they occur, and how to safely invite them into our yards with ways to discourage them if you choose.


The program, usually includes a plant raffle that will begin at 9:30 a.m. and run approximately until noon in the Town Council Chambers located at 33 Easy Street and Nonchalant Avenue in Carefree.


A $5 (or more) donation is appreciated to support these programs. This is the first of 4 programs of the 2019 Carefree Desert Gardens seminar series.


For information call 480-488-3686. Come early as seating is limited.
