MARCH 20th UPDATE: EVENT IS SOLD OUT! Online ticket reservations have closed but you can email to see if any become available from cancellations by Fri Mar 23rd. 

This fascinating opportunity to come behind the scenes to tour the Wild ARC facility in Metchosin, just outside Victoria, accompanied by one of our experienced volunteer guides happens only once a year. Due to high demand, reservations are necessary to ensure all guests get the most out of their experience.

While no wild patients will be on display (we need to make sure their recovery takes place with as little stress as possible) there will be educational raptors on site, as well as children’s activities and educational displays from several community groups.

The event is free but cash and in-kind (food, supplies) donations are much appreciated and will go towards the continued life-saving work at Wild ARC. Operating 365 days a year, Wild ARC’s specialized team of staff and volunteers have cared for more than 40,000 wild patients since opening in 1997.

Any reservation questions such as large groups, or requests for special accessible tours for those with mobility issues, can be sent to or call 778-433-7722 for assistance.

The annual open house weekend happens rain or shine, and always fills up quickly. Please help us spread the word about this exciting event, and reserve your visit today!
