Times Spent Outdoors: Priceless!

Take Advantage Of Book Bargains At AZGFD Dollar Days

Two collections feature Arizona wildlife.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department has a bargain offer for anyone interested in learning more about Arizona’s wildlife, in fishing, and eating wild-caught foods. From Sept. 17–21, the department will be selling four of its most popular books (that normally retail from $5 to $8) for just $1 each (while supplies last) at the Game and Fish offices in Phoenix, Mesa, Tucson, Flagstaff, Pinetop, Kingman and Yuma; available are the following:

Arizona Wildlife Views Special Edition — This 155-page collection of Arizona Wildlife Views magazine’s special editions explores the natural history of the state’s birds, reptiles, amphibians, bats and game species.

Amphibians and Reptiles of Maricopa County — This illustrated guide to the 82 species of amphibians and reptiles found in Maricopa County is a collaborative effort between the Arizona Game and Fish Department and Arizona State University. The 68-page book is a practical tool both for frequent wildlife watchers and for county residents who encounter snakes and lizards once in a while.

Arizona Fishin’ Holes — The 2010 edition is a “glovebox-ready” guide to the state’s best fishing. Find out which fish swim where, and learn about amenities such as boat ramps and campgrounds at fishing holes. The booklet includes GPS coordinates for each lake and up-to-date resource telephone numbers and Internet addresses.

All Things Edible — After a good day at the lake or in the field, it’s time to turn that fish or game into a tasty meal. This is a collection of recipes featuring wild-caught fare.

Game and Fish offices will be open normal hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday) during Dollar Days. For addresses, visit http://www.azgfd.gov/offices or call (602) 942-3000.
