Experiencing West Place

OUR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS:

We can provide education and community learning opportunities. These types of engagements help West Place tell our story and share knowledge about animals and their abilities to recover, adapt and thrive in caring environments.

Our programs seek to connect children and adults alike to animal and environmental issues, to nurture empathy, and to inspire a sense of personal responsibility and accountability toward the care of our earth and our animals.

 

When we engage and empower children to be a part of the solution in animal protection and in the preservation of the earth, we inspire responsibility and accountability in the next generation of animal care givers and earth conservators. Our goal is to connect visitors empathetically to the lives and experiences of the animals at the sanctuary, to ignite a new awareness of our roles and responsibilities in the lives of all animals with whom we share this planet, and to inspire a commitment to change.

We can customize a visit to focus on a wide variety of disciplines and interests, including: plants and animals, life cycles, ecosystems, diversity, adaptations, engineering, sustainability (the sanctuary has three greenhouses to grow food for the animals and also has a pond fed by runoff and aerated to allow fish, turtles, and water fowl access year-round), and rehabilitation. We can tailor programs for any age or grade level.

Contact us at westplaceeducationprograms@gmail.com to discuss what we can do for you.

TOURS

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC DAILY

We offer private tours of our beautiful Sanctuary by appointment for groups of TEN or more. We pride ourselves on catering to the individual interests of each group. We can accommodate people of all ages and needs. We can make it a fun experience or a serious one; either way, they are always educational and enjoyable. Whether it's for a camp group, scout troop, another organization, or a large family, we can tailor the tour to fit you. You'll want to return year after year.

Each tour with Q&A runs approximately one to one and a half hours and groups are welcome to walk among the lovely gardens and enjoy the expansive grounds, have photo shoots with animals, and browse our gift shop.
