A few years back, we found an injured bird in the New Times atrium. We knew exactly what to do: We scooped him up into a box and drove him to Liberty Wildlife. This nonprofit organization cares for and rehabilitates orphaned and injured wild animals, teaches people of all ages about wildlife, and instills in the community a respect for the value and beauty of nature. In pre-pandemic times, this translated into camps for kids, nature walks, educational programs, tours, "Coffee With a Ranger" events, and more. Since the spring, we've had to get our cute animal fix by following Liberty on Instagram, but we're looking forward to the day we can again visit the south Phoenix facility and learn more about the precious desert wildlife that surrounds us.
