About the Event

Along with rescue, sanctuary and conservation, education is a top priority at EAST. Bringing your classroom for a tour at EAST is an enriching, educational, fun experience and a great way for the classroom to learn close up about parrots and the importance of their care and our human responsibilities to them. Because these tours often fall outside our regular tour dates and times, please contact us so we can make arrangements for a guided educational tour for your classroom. 

IMPORTANT: This Field Trip is only for 5 years old and up for safety!

  • Visitors should wear closed-toe shoes. Some of our residents enjoy surprising your toes.
  • The Sanctuary can be a very LOUD place. If you are sensitive to noise, you should consider bringing earplugs or noise-blocking headphones.
  • Visitors are encouraged to take photos while on tour, but flash photography is not allowed.
  • If you have a parrot, you cannot bring your bird with you. The potential risks to our flock, and to yours, preclude such visits.
  • If you wish to visit our facility, you will have to read, agree to and sign our “Acknowledgment and Waiver” before your tour can begin.
  • Anyone under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Small children might be frightened by the noise and must be monitored closely by their guardian(s).
  • Tours are guided and educational. Everyone in a designated tour group must stay together at all times. Once the tour starts, individual participants will not be allowed to stray from or leave the tour group.
  • If you are sick or coming down with something, please reschedule your tour. EAST is run completely by volunteers. There are no “sick days” here. The work at the sanctuary must be completed daily regardless of sickness.

Although some of our residents may have once been pets, be advised that they are wild animals with wild instincts that may make them unpredictable and aggressive. Visitors are not allowed to touch any of our residents, except as supervised by an EAST tour representative.
