The sanctuary is located 1.3 miles up Buttemere Rd. which is a county maintained dirt road. While traveling down Buttemere you will see a Y in the road. Stay to the left side of the Y, and go down small dip. We are up, just past 2 more streets on the left hand side. GPS apps like Google maps, and Waze haven't worked well for guests in the past.
Parking is located in front of the Learning Center.
Inclement weather can cause closures of the Sanctuary from time to time so it is advisable you call ahead.
