WANT TO SCHEDULE A TOUR OR PROGRAM?
***IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TOURS:
We are very eager to once again see you all out at Back To The Wild! However, there have to be a few changes to make sure everything is safe for our wildlife ambassadors, staff, and visitors. Please read the following carefully before scheduling a tour. We can't wait to see you all again!
Because we are also dealing with a massive increase in animal intakes, we will only be scheduling two tours per day.
We will only be accepting SCHEDULED tours at this time to help keep our focus on the animals in rehab and getting them a second chance in the wild!
Tours are limited to a maximum of 5 people per group.
All guests 3 years old and older must wear a mask. As much as we hate to ask it of everyone, some of our ambassadors are vulnerable to this new strain of virus and we have to keep them safe.**
If you have questions or would like to schedule, please give us a call at 419-684-9539 and we'd be happy to help!
**We fully understand that 3 year olds are unpredictable and keeping a mask on them can be difficult. All we ask is that people do their best under the circumstances. Thank you all SO MUCH for your kindness and generosity!

Expect to spend about 45 minutes to an hour outside learning about Ohio's wonderful wildlife.
