This is an informative walk through the forest to see the rescued animals. Loved learning about each of the critters: hawk, owl, bobcat, brown bear, coyote, eagle, golden eagle, etc. They are only open by reservations on Saturdays.

This is an wild animal rescue sanctuary for animals that cannot be returned to the wild mostly due to injuries. Must call for a reservation $15, unique place, worth the time and effort.

The caretakers at the ranch are dedicated and knowledgeable. We saw a bobcat, coyotes, black bears, a bald eagle, a golden eagle, etc. Very in-depth explanation of the animals and how they came to the ranch.

Staff was friendly, provided lots of great information and very knowledgeable about each animal. It's a walking tour with lots of inclines/declines on both paved and unpaved areas. Not wheelchair accessible...be careful if you have problems walking on uneven terrain. It's definitely a hidden gem...worth...More

This is a facility where animals that can't be returned to the wild are lovingly cared for. Visiting was the highlight of our vacation. Our grandkids, ages 13, 9 and 5, really loved the up-close-and-personal experience. Tours are only given once or twice a week,...More

Great place to visit, everyone should make the effort to get out there, great informative volunteers. These people should be recognized for the effort they put into rescue, and care given to the animals.
