Updates on Closures and Covid-19 Restrictions
Last updated March 19, 2021
We have now re-opened for business as of March 2nd for limited visitor use and on a reservation only system. The booking system (see below) has been reactivated and made live again for bookings.
The Sanctuary was closed from Christmas Day to the end of February in support of ongoing provincial and regional initiatives to reduce Covid-19 spread through community contact. The closure was also the result of concerns expressed by some visitors about other visitors demonstrating lack of physical distancing and inappropriate large gatherings along the Sanctuary trails.
Now that we are open again, it will be very important to us that visitors feel that their concerns about potential exposure to Covid-19 from other visitors are recognized. Some visitors may be drawn here as a destination with their friends and family, others may be here specifically to avoided crowded conditions and to keep away from all other people.
Our Covid-19 Safety protocols are followed by staff, but we also depend upon all of our visitors to do their part. Please remember physical distancing rules and the original Covid-19 catch-phrases from Dr. Bonnie Henry when dealing with others at our facility. Be Kind. Be Calm. Be Safe.
Please read the following document and acknowledge the following terms and conditions for visiting the Sanctuary in 2021.
