Read All About Us
Summer tours suspended for 2021. We have been redoing and srestructuring fencing and paddocks and while doing so have had several instances of hand to shovel combat with prairie rattlers. The board has decided that it is not comfortable continuing walking tours in tall pastures at this time. One snake was a button rattler close to the main compound. Updates will be ongoing. We greatly apologize for any disappoints and inconviences this may cause our visitors, donors and guests.
