Javelina on Her Doorstep | Tohono Chul Event

Sunday, October 23 at 2:00 pm (PT)

As the first licensed wildlife rehabilitator for Arizona Game and Fish, Sarah Gorby was known to raise, repair and release back to the wild 90% of the animals she cared for. “The more I see of people, the more I like my pigs,” Gorby would say. That all changed when supporters like Park founders Dick and Jean Wilson and actor Lee Marvin began hosting fundraisers for Gorby and “people” turned out in droves to support her mission. Her house became an “ark in the desert” filled with everything from bears and mountain lions to hawks and owls. Marvin was heard to remark once, “my friend, Sarah Gorby, has the only house I have been in where you wipe your feet on the way out.” In a heartfelt new book, longtime friend Lorna Kraemer and daughter RaMar Gorby Orgeron share stories about a life few others would choose, but one that made a difference in a groundbreaking quest to rescue and restore Arizona wildlife.
