Educational Tours

Book a Tour

Select a date for your tour and fill out the form. Someone from BSAS will confirm your appointment. Tours are available on Saturdays at 2:oopm. Please note we close our tours for the winter season but our friends at the Sanctuary cannot wait to meet you in the spring!


What is the cost of the tour?

Our educational tours are free as we especially want to be accessible to low-income families.

 However, if you can, a donation of $5 or $10 is always welcome.


How long is the tour/what are the days and hours?

Depending on the size of the group, the tour can last anywhere between 2-3 hours. Our tours start at 2pm on Saturdays.


Are there Covid-19 precautions in place?

Yes! Please do not attend if you are unwell. The tour is outdoors, however, when going inside to use the facilities, please wear a mask.


Where do I park?

Parking is clearly indicated once you enter the sanctuary. Please close all gates behind you as we have roaming animals.


Can I bring my dog?

No. For safety reasons, we do not allow any personal pets at the Sanctuary.


Will we have a guide?

Yes, you will have a well-informed guide take you around the Sanctuary and tell you about the animals, the Sanctuary and anything else you would like to know.


Will I be able to feed the animals?

No. Many of our animals are on special diets which need to be monitored carefully. Guests are welcome to bring fresh produce to donate which is much appreciated but will not be able to feed it to residents themselves.


During the tour can we touch the animals?

While we never force our animals to interact with visitors if they don’t want to, many of our residents are very social and enjoy the extra attention. You are most welcome to meet and pet the animals under our supervision.


Can I take photos during the tour?



Will the tour still take place even if the weather changes and we have rain/snow?

If its raining or snowing, please reach out to reschedule.


Can I be late for the tour?           

No. The gates will close shortly after the tour starts. Please reschedule if you are running late.


What should I wear and what do I need for the tour?

You will likely get snout prints on your clothes. Wear something you don’t mind getting dirty, wear sturdy shoes and feel free to bring a bottle of water. If you bring snacks for yourself, please ensure you are not bringing any animal products to the sanctuary. You may also want to leave your snacks in the car as our porcine friends will immediately detect food.
