Liberty Wildlife Campus

Where Learning and Caring for Wildlife Go Hand-In-Hand

Liberty Wildlife’s 11,000-square-foot facility in the heart of Phoenix, AZ, allows the organization to continue its mission of assisting injured wildlife while providing expanded educational experiences for the community. The expanded campus offers residency programs, internships, and other advanced learning opportunities developed through extensive outreach programs. The project is located on a site that was once a sand and gravel pit, which, through design and landscaping initiatives, has now been reclaimed and restored. In addition to the educational opportunities offered by the enlarged facility, the intent of the project was to restore this area in the heart of the city to the lush riparian corridor it once was.
