City of Sedona ArizonaSedona AZ (October 13, 2013) – Fall really is the best time of year. Cool enough to enjoy an evening stroll through a new city park and warm enough to enjoy a pumpkin patch in the water. We recommend you try both.

On September 27, the Sedona Wetlands Preserve enjoyed its grand opening celebration. This unique facility, located just outside of the city at 19655 State Route 89A, is open to the public from dawn until dusk. A new parking lot, restrooms, picnic ramadas, and walking trails await visitors when they arrive. The Preserve occupies approximately 27 acres in Effluent Management Area 2, which is located south of the Sedona Waste Water Reclamation Plant (WWRP). Read More→

That inherent love of nature (along with a little bit of mischievousness) stayed with her, and she became a full-time bronze sculptor in the 1980s after moving to Sedona and working at a foundry. More than 30 years later, Kim still lives in Sedona where she is exclusively represented by Rowe Fine Art Gallery. Kim will unveil a new bronze sculpture and two works in progress during The Magic of Nature on Nov. 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. during the Sedona Gallery Association’s 1st Friday Gallery Tour. Read More→
