Member Tours

Limited member-only tours of Wildlife Waystation are back and are offered every other Sunday, weather-permitting. The tour program lasts approx. 3 hours and includes a walkthrough of a portion of our facility along with a presentation which talks about our history, mission, and plans for the future. This presentation may also include an educational Q&A with some of our animals. 

In order to participate in these tours, you must be a member of Wildlife Waystation. If you are not a member, please click here and you can sign-up for one of our membership levels. You can then click in the yellow box above to choose an available tour time. If you are a current donor to Wildlife Waystation and would like to convert your status to a member, please call the office at 818-899-5201.

If you are already a member, thank you for being part of our family at Wildlife Waystation! One of the benefits of membership is that you will be able to purchase tickets to join us for member days where you can take a guided tour with our docents to meet and learn about the animal(s) that you are supporting and see what it takes to care for 400+ animals of over 100 species and hear about all of the projects we are working on to continue providing the best home and care for our residents!
