Know Before You Go
Admission is only $5 though you must bring cash for admission and gift shop purchases. During winter months, you must have a 4 wheel or all wheel drive car, since roads can be steep getting into the center. Due to the nature of the center, all pets, including service animals, are prohibited from being on grounds.
There are volunteers available to assist in the event you need help navigating the property. The center is open on Sundays between September and June (closed during January) and is open Friday through Sunday between July and August. Unlike some other similar facilities, there are no set tour times, so feel free to arrive whenever you wish during normal hours. Visitors are allowed to take as many photos as they want, and since you can be as close as four feet to the fence, just about any DSLR camera should be able to filter it out.
