The Highlands Center for Natural History, 1375 S. Walker Road, is playing host to its fourth annual "Warmth from the Heart" Holiday Arts & Crafts festival from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday at the complex's James Learning Center in Prescott.
Many Prescott-area artisans and crafts persons will be on-site to sell their wares. Part of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Highlands Center's outdoor educational programs for children.
Folks can shop for creative metal sculptures made from recycled materials, wood crafts and sculptures, handmade rugs, silk scarves, crocheted items, handcrafted cards and unique hiking sticks, among other nature-related goods.
The Highlands Center's Benson Family Nature Store will also feature items for youngsters, including a special kids area with gifts going for $10 or less.
Santa will pay a visit to the festival at 2 p.m., and one of his elves will be available for photo opportunities and for hand-delivering letters to him.
People are encouraged to bring canned goods for donation to the local food bank. Those who do will be entered into a drawing for a 25-percent-off gift certificate good for a one-day shopping spree at the nature store.
