Attend a Class / Workshop
There is no alcohol, drugs, tobacco, or consumption of animal products at the sanctuary. This policy is strictly enforced. What you do outside of the sanctuary is your business, but please do not arrive inebriated, intoxicated, or otherwise disruptive.
Visitors have told us that our sanctuary has a special feel to it. There is a calm on the land and with the animals that they find remarkable. Please contribute to this calm environment through kind actions and words.
We want our sanctuary to be an opportunity for you to learn and explore ways of treating the land, and the plants, animals and people that call it home. If you would like to experiment with growing food or caring for animals, please clear your plans with the onsite manager. Thank you for being considerate.
- Please stick to the paths. We are planting lots of groundcover to abate weed overgrowth. Treading on these plants can weaken them. It will reduce their effectiveness against the weeds.
- Visitors should refrain from picking flowers and fruit without the supervision of trained staff. The staff have the experience to know what can be collected, when, and how much. Overgrazing can damage the plant's health.
- Visitors must be accompanied by trained staff when visiting the animals. Although the animals are sweet and loving, for their safety and yours you must have someone familiar with their personality while interacting with them.
- Visitors must listen to and comply with all instructions of the trained staff member.
- Do not feed the animals fruit, vegetables or bread. Good health is already a challenge in our wet climate. The sugar from fruit and vegetables in seemingly nutritious snacks will negatively impact several species of animals' hooves. Contrary to popular actions, bread is very bad for bird health. If you want to feed the animals, come during feeding hours and give them their staple of feed.
- Please place trash in the designated rubbish bins.
- Deposit recyclable beverage containers in their respective recycling bins. Look on the label to see if it includes HI 5. All items without this designation will need to be placed with the rubbish.
- If you see obstacles that may trip/injure a person or other animal, please notify management.
