The 14th annual Tres Rios Nature Festival has been rescheduled because of flooding from recent rains.
The event, originally set for Saturday and Sunday, will be held April 1-2 at the Base and Meridian Wildlife Area, 7602 S. Avondale Blvd., Avondale.
Recent storms have filled the water basins in the northern parts of the state, according to a press release from the city of Avondale. To allow for available space for future runoff, Salt River Project has released water from its reservoirs, causing the Salt and Gila rivers to flow, and the site of the festival to be flooded.
Event activities will include wildlife displays, archery, fishing, canoeing, bird watching and hiking.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days with musical acts performing along the river until 7 p.m. Admission is free.
