Tours and Visits

Because of the nature of what we do here, we regret that we can not allow open visits. Our animals need as little human contact as possible to make a successful and safe transition back to the wild.


We also often have potentially dangerous animals on the property which could become an issue for an untrained visitor. We DO however offer a very small number of tours each year. In return for this unique, one on one and rare experience, we request a donation that can significantly make an impact on our organization's ability to help the animals here. To have a PRIVATE tour, we request a $1000 donation (for up to six people).


We understand that this request is a large amount and it does not suit everyone’s abilities, but because we can offer so few tours, and because we need these funds to continue the work we are doing here, this is what we can offer in order to allow people to come and see the animals here and to meet Jim and Susan. Contact us if you would like to arrange a tour.


We do accept and appreciate volunteers but it is required that  you are a licensed wildlife rehabilitator. Even then, NO ONE works with the bears other than Susan and Jim. Check our HELP page for more details.  


We thank you for understanding and working with us on visiting our sanctuary.
