Resort kids programs adding value for families

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

(Tribune Media Services) — The visiting kids are shy about meeting the Arizona locals until Lance, Bailey and Sonora start showing off their tricks, wowing their young guests.

Meet Lance the Hawk, Bailey the turkey vulture and Sonora, a 2-year-old bald eagle — all injured and nursed back to health by Liberty Wildlife, which in the last 25 years has rehabilitated more than 50,000 wild animals.

What’s even more amazing than seeing these creatures strut their stuff “up close,” as the kids say, is where we are seeing them — in a free show on the lawn at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort at Gainey Ranch.

This expansive resort, like others in the Hyatt group, is committed to introducing its guests to the culture and wildlife of the region. We’re in Arizona so we are learning about Arizona birds. We’re also treated to Native American dancing.

“A lot of people have stereotypes about native people,” says Derrick Suwaima Davis, a champion hoop dancer. The hoop dance celebrates the circle of life. “We are the children’s role models.”
