Touring the sanctuary is more than just getting to know the animals, it’s an interactive animal experience! When you tour with the Zoology Foundation, you’ll learn all about our residents’ stories, from how they got here to what they like to eat, what makes them happy, and what makes them sad. Animals, like humans, experience a wide range of emotions, and visiting our sanctuary is one of the best ways to experience that first hand. Plus, they love the extra attention they get when the public comes to visit!
Tours typically last one and a half to two hours long. Interactions may include touching and feeding some of our residents. Interactions can change daily based on the health and attitude of the animals. If you have a specific request, please chat with the staff member who schedules your tour to determine whether or not it is possible.
Our tour season is over until May 1, 2023. If you would like to schedule a tour or field trip for after this date, please follow these instructions. Please fill out the form, call 303-951-8813, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your tour. Available dates change with the seasonal demands. Public tours are available in groups of up to 12 guests per time slot. If you have a larger group, email Anna Miller at email@example.com for more details.
We do offer a special and up close Behind-the-Scenes Experience for $150.
This experience allows you to choose and spend time with a specific animal and, depending on the animal’s mood, help provide care. You may also watch a training session, and even participate in it. You will get a more in-depth and interactive experience while learning more about the species, care, diet, and characteristics.Learn More
Yes, you will!
On our tours, you’ll learn all about our residents’ stories, from how they got here to what they like to eat, and what makes them happy.
As we are a working farm, for your safety and the safety of the animals, we ask that you wear close-toed, flat shoes and dress appropriately for the weather – it could be muddy in some spots.
Our tours typically last about 2 hours.
