REVISED: Visitor Hours Aug. 11 - Sept. 1
School is back in session, and that means Black Pine has bid farewell to our summer crew of student interns. We are now awaiting the arrival of the new "class" in the coming days. As such, weekday (Monday - Friday) guided tour schedules are subject to change on a day to day basis, due to staff shortages, from August 11 through Labor Day on September 1. If you plan to visit on a weekday during this period, please consult our Options by Date calendar for updates.
THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2014: We offer general visitation today from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., plus a staff-guided sanctuary tour beginning at 11:00 a.m. The staff-guided tour will last about 90 minutes and is at no added charge. Sorry, no 3:00 p.m. guided sanctuary tour is offered today. Wolf Den Gifts & Things will be also be open.
8th Annual Beer Tasting
Event organizers are rounding up vendors, making plans for Black Pine's 8th annual Lions, Tigers & Beer, Black Pine! We hope you'll join us on Saturday, October 4 from 6 to 9 p.m. to enjoy dinner, beer tastings, music, an exciting silent auction, and the animals! This adults-only event offers the unparalleled opportunity to meet nearly 100 displaced exotic animals. Come watch, listen, and learn about the personal journeys that brought these animals to Black Pine where they will have refuge for the REST of their lives. All proceeds support their ongoing care.

If you're just passing through or don't have time to stay and tour the sanctuary, you can still enjoy browsing the Wolf Den Gifts & Things and take advantage of free Wi-Fi at Black Pine! Carry in a lunch, your laptop, and take a break at a cafe table in the A/C. Road warriors are welcomed - no purchase required!
