Ongoing - Sanctuary Tours


Group public tours are held year round - rain or shine! Current tour dates are posted below. A $10 minimum donation per person is requested and can be given at the beginning of your tour.

Email to reserve space on an upcoming tour. Be sure to let us know how many spaces you need. There are a limited number of spaces for each tour, and each tour usually becomes fully booked a few weeks in advance. If we have reserved space for you, it is important that you show up. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend. This will allow other guests to take your place.

We rarely cancel a tour - only in the case of an extreme weather event. You will be notified by email if this occurs.
