Inspiring People to Connect with Nature
We are opening our trails to MEMBERS ONLY this Saturday (5/30) and Sunday (5/31) from 8am-12pm. Come on out and take a walk!
Please follow the signs down under the building to check in, and make sure you get a picture of our new trail guide or download it from here. The Pine Loop trail and Wildlands trail will be open, so follow the posted safety guidelines, map, and directional arrows, and have a wonderful time on our trails.
Our museum, planetarium, butterfly garden, and picnic areas will not be open, so make sure you go to the bathroom before you come on the trails as there are no open bathrooms on site. Bring your water bottles, wear sunscreen, and stay safe!
If you would like to renew your membership or need to become a member, go here! We’re offering 16 month memberships for the price of 12 months. So renewing your membership will add sixteen months onto your current membership, no matter when it expires! And for members whose memberships have expired between March 16th and now, if you decide not to renew we will automatically add three months onto your previous membership.
We will NOT be selling memberships at the door, so if you are not currently a member and would like to become one make sure you go here and purchase your membership before you arrive!
Thank you all so much for your support, we can't wait to see our members this weekend, and we'll keep you all updated on our plans on reopening to the public!
We need your help!
During normal times, our operating expenses average $1,000 a day.
During this COVID-19 shutdown, we still have 25+ animals to care for and bills to pay. Since almost all of our funding comes from admission fees and fundraisers, we are without any income.
Any and all donations are appreciated. Please visit our GoFundMe campaign or PayPal page to contribute. You can even shop to support us! And visit our Facebook page for regular updates and educational programming related to our mission of
