ADDRESS:

2202 Walnut Creek Rd

Marshall, NC 28753

 

DIRECTIONS:

FROM  ASHEVILLE, (Weaverville) -

Take I-26 West to Weaverville and take Exit 19A to 25/70, to Marshall & Hot Springs.

Marshall is about 10 miles from this exit. In Marshall turn right at the second traffic light onto Walnut Creek Rd.

Go 1-1/2 miles. We are on the right just 2/10 mile past Smoky Mtn. Trail Rides and Bison Farm which are on Lee Ramsey Rd. Don't turn on Lee Ramsey Rd. Keep going, (slowly), 2/10 mile. Watch for a cut out sloth sign on your right that says, "Hands-on Wildlife Interactions" at our entrance. If you don't go too fast you will see this in time to enter the driveway.

The street sign on our driveway says "Nature's Way".  

NOTE:

Approach the driveway slowly. It drops off from the main road quickly but is easy if you don't go too fast.

Also, the bridge is actually very strong and safe even though it may not appear that way. 

Parking is just a few feet across the bridge to the left, or for compact or mid sized cars there is also parking to your right just after the bridge.
PLEASE DO NOT PARALLEL PARK.
From there, follow the signs up Kangaroo Ct. to your interactions.

The walk is a moderate 1/10 mile, but uphill on a gravel road. If you think you might have any problems with this, you can call us, and we will be happy to give you a ride up to the encounters.

(305) 255-9453   (305-ALL- WILD)

If you are visiting in an RV or have a trailer, please call before you visit for parking options.

At this time, all interactions are inside a building, so you can visit and have a great experience even on a day when the weather is not very good. 

At this time we do not have any food available. There are options nearby and you are welcome to bring your own. There are picnic tables available just outside the building.

Adults: $15           
Children ages 4-12 years $12   

Children 3 & under - no charge

These are a charitable donations.
We are a registered 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization.

Credit Cards are accepted, but CASH IS PREFERRED. Please plan ahead.

Credit card and tap payments will be charged an additional 3%. This amount helps offset our credit card expenses, and helps us to provide the best care for our animals as well as the best experiences for you. 

We need volunteers for a wide variety of tasks. Please contact us if you are interested in helping with building enclosures, electrical, plumbing or basic carpentry work, fencing, animal care, guide, collecting and cutting firewood from our property, picking up donated items, and many other tasks.

WE ARE ESPECIALLY LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO HELP PUT IN A SUBMERSIBLE WELL PUMP AT A REASONABLE PRICE.

ALSO, A MECHANIC THAT CAN COME TO OUR FACILITY TO WORK ON GAS AND/OR SMALL DIESEL VEHICLES.
Volunteers would be great, but we will pay reasonable price for help with either of these. Either way, please contact us if can help with these projects.

WHEN YOU VISIT

We can always use the following:

 

-Fruits, vegetables, meat , bread or any type of food that you would not use. Even egg shells and orange peels.

Our chickens will actually eat most any food you don't want. You can even put any left-overs in a bag and bring it in. The chickens will love it. The wolves love meat that is a bit past it's prime for humans. Our Guinea Pigs love orange peels, and since they can't store vitamin C, this is actually very good for them.

- We can also use any amount of shredded paper. We make fire logs out of this to heat the building the animals live in and that  can save a lot of $ on heating. We can also use volunteers to help us make the paper logs. 

- We are currently looking for a refrigerator and also a freezer in working condition. We don't care what they look like as long as they work.
