Twilight Tour
Acton, CA — September 5, 2015 — SOLD OUT
Watkins Glen, NY — September 12, 2015
As the animals finish their dinners and start winding down, they’d love your company for one last belly rub or head scratch before bedtime! Our Twilight Tour, back by popular demand, is a great chance to interact with the animals in new ways as you learn about their nighttime habits. The event will feature visiting time with our animal residents, an educational talk from one of our expert staffers, and a light reception afterwards. This is a unique opportunity to bond with your favorite sanctuary pals as the sun begins to set and to take in the true beauty of nature.

Farm Animal Care Conference — SOLD OUT
Watkins Glen, NY
Farm Sanctuary’s long history of rescuing and caring for animals has put our organization at the cutting edge of farm-animal care. The techniques and methods developed by our staff are used at sanctuaries across the country. Each fall, we invite guests to the sanctuary for a hands-on course geared toward those interested in adopting animals or starting a sanctuary of their own. This year we will be adding an extra day to provide guests with even more information and hands-on learning. Attendees benefit from the expert knowledge of our National Shelter Director Susie Coston as well as the directors of our Volunteer Programs, Visitor Experience and Development departments. If you want to learn more about what it takes to care for rescued farm animals, this is an experience that cannot be missed. Read more information.

The 2015 Farm Animal Care Conference is now sold out and the waiting list is full.
