Summer Fest

Summer Fest has been an annual tradition at Black Pine for more than 16 years!  The last Saturday in July each summer we celebrate our hard-working volunteers, dedicated student interns, and our supporters by coming together with a fun-filled day of special activities.  This is a great day for first-time visitors to come meet the animals, their caregivers, and learn more about Black Pine's mission!  Bring a picnic and enjoy the day with us!

No guided tours are scheduled, instead visitors will enjoy exploring the sanctuary throughout the day and meeting our keepers stationed all around the compound to introduce you to the animals, answer your questions, all while doing outreach presentations and providing enrichment to the animals. No appointments necessary!

Regular sanctuary tour rates apply:  Ages 2 and under FREE, ages 3-9 $7.00, ages 10-54 $8.00, ages 55+ $7.50.  Refreshments not included.
