Our trails and Visitors’ Center are open to the public free of charge.
However, reservations are required for groups of 10 or more. Please fill
out the reservation form below at least two weeks in advance. This will
allow us to prepare for your group, while also accommodating our many
other visitors each week.
Leaders of visiting groups: Please understand that the Lab is primarily a research, conservation, and global outreach unit. Although our visitor center and sanctuary are enjoyed by thousands of visitors each month, we currently do not have any staff dedicated to providing specialized tours or tailored visitor experiences, so only self-guided tours through the visitor center and the sanctuary can be guaranteed. Specialized tours can sometimes be arranged for university classes and other groups with targeted interests, but please be aware that these activities require diverting staff from their regular work or research activities. They therefore require advance planning and coordination, and can not always be accommodated (though we will always try our best).
We look forward to seeing you here!
