You must email us at least 48 hours in advance of the tour date and time to schedule a tour at the Refuge. We have limited room on the tours. We are open every Monday at 11AM, Wednesday at 11AM and Saturday at 4PM. To schedule a tour during one of these times, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and note space is limited on tours. Please do not call, we only schedule tours through email.
Individuals and groups interested in Saturday tours might need to reserve their space 1-2 months in advance because of these tours’ popularity.
Our tours are free of charge, but we always appreciate donations. Items we always need include: paper towels, toilet paper, fresh kale, and boxes of latex-free gloves.
