The Save Our Mountains Foundation hosts a “Music in the Mountains” concert event, Oct. 17-18 at the North Mountain Visitor Center, 12950 N. 7th St.
There will be free performances and activities throughout each day from 1 to 9 p.m., and food available for purchase starting at 4 p.m. Proceeds of the food sales will be used complete the Bird Blind landscaping project and water feature at the center.
The Bird Blind allows the visitor to view wildlife without disturbing their natural movement. The best way to attract birds to the area is a water feature. This final portion of the project only needs a little financial boost. There will be several ways to contribute to the project during the Music in the Mountains weekend, including raffles and a silent auction that closes at 7:15 p.m. on Sunday.
The schedule also includes a Doggy Costume Show by the Havasupup Rescue at 1 p.m. Sunday; some of the animals will be available for adoption. And Liberty Wildlife Rehabilitation Center will be visiting with some of its desert animals starting at 1 p.m. both days, on the back patio.
The festival is free and open to the public, and the NMVC volunteer staff will be on hand to provide assistance to maximize concert enjoyment. For more information, call 602-343-5125 or visit www.northmountainvisitorcenter.org.
