Field trips are a 1.5 hour guided walking tour of the sanctuary grounds where students will meet animals and learn about their stories. Your class or organization will learn new and interesting information about animals, their habits and personalities, and connect with the rescue stories of individual residents. This trip is great for students learning about animals, science, creative writing, or other similar subjects. We can tailor field trips to specific subjects to help you create classroom projects! Please reach out to email@example.com for additional information or special requests.

Field Trip FAQ's Q: How much does the field trip cost?
A: Our Field Trips are currently free with a suggested donation of $2 per attendee to help us continue to provide care for the 170+ residents who call Full Circle home.
Q: What does the field trip consist of?
A: The tour is a guided walking tour of the sanctuary, where you will follow a staff member and learn about some of our residents, and about the industries and systems where they came from. There is no graphic content on the tour, but guides will be providing information about the realities of animal agriculture. Some signs around the sanctuary have images of industrial farming. Please wear outdoor-appropriate shoes and bring water and sunscreen.
Q: Can we feed the animals?
A: Guests will not feed the residents, because care staff needs to carefully monitor the diets of all residents. Guests are welcome to bring produce to donate which is much appreciated, but will not be able to feed it to residents themselves.
Q: What produce donations should we bring?
A: Our favorite produce to receive include melons, light greens (romaine, iceberg, etc), berries, pineapples, apples, pears, tomatoes, and carrots.
Q: Can we pet the animals?
A: There is limited interaction with residents on the tour. The main focus is to learn about the residents and be respeciful of their space. If an animal approaches you, you are invited to interact with them, but if they walk away we will leave them alone.
Q: Can we bring food?
A: You can bring your own lunch as long as it is vegan (no animal products: no meat, dairy, eggs, honey, or similar items). Guests who do not abide by this rule may be asked to put these items away.
Q: Is the tour accessible to those with physical disabilities?
A: Our tours include unpaved roads and parts of the tour are uphill. The tours visit most of the animal enclosures from the fence so visitors with wheelchairs or other mobility aids will be able to participate. We welcome visitors who use scooters or wheelchairs. If you require any special accommodations, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure we can make your tour experience as good as possible. Unfortunately at this time we do not have accessible bathrooms on site. ADA accessibility is a future goal for our organization.
