***IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TOURS:
WE ARE OPEN FOR TOURS BEGINNING JUNE 14TH
We are excited to say that starting on June 14th, Back To The Wild will be open for small, private tours.
Tours will be by appointment only. Call 419-684-9539 between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm to schedule a tour.
Tours will be limited to 10 or fewer people until further notice.
Due to the sensitive nature of some of our wildlife ambassadors, visitors over the age of 5 will be asked to wear masks. We know this is not convenient but we want to make sure we're protecting the amazing animals that call Back To The Wild home!
There is no cost for tours, all we ask is that you bring a monetary donation to help us cover the cost of the tour and to help care for our amazing wildlife ambassadors!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call!
SCHEDULING A PRIVATE TOUR
Please read through Tour Information before calling to schedule a tour
Call anytime! Because we work with such a small staff, our tours are by appointment. There is no charge but it sure helps if you can leave a donation! Simply give us a call at 419-684-9539 and we will set you up with one of our wonderful and amazing tour guides. Expect to spend about 45 minutes to an hour outside learning about Ohio's wonderful wildlife.
Our facility is handicap accessible with sidewalks and a handicap restroom. We have several wheelchairs and scooters for visitors to borrow if need be.
