Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary

The ENC Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary – Coming in 2022!

Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary is a 12 acre wildlife sanctuary located in Modjeska Canyon. It includes a natural history museum, trails, and a bird observation deck. It’s a great place to quietly observe nature! Summer Nature Camps at Tucker are enrolling NOW! The Sanctuary will open to the public in 2022, so check back here for the exact date or join our email list HERE. For general questions about Tucker, email Lori.

Interested in volunteering at Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary? Please apply HERE.


Is Tucker open? Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary in Modjeska Canyon is not yet open to the public. The ENC is making upgrades to the facility before opening to the public once again. Summer Nature Camps at Tucker are enrolling NOW! We are scheduling scout programs and bEARTHday Parties, and a limited number of school field trip programs as well. To schedule a program email Mindy. Community members interested in learning more about Tucker should keep an eye out for updates at https://encenter.org/tucker/ or sign up on the ENC’s Tucker email list to be informed of future programs, volunteer and employment opportunities.

I’d like to donate birdseed. What kinds do you accept? We can accept black oil sunflower seed, mixes of millet and sunflower, plain millet, nyjer seed, mealworms and peanuts. We CANNOT accept mixes that have milo in them (Milo is orangish round seed slightly larger than millet).

Parking: Limited parking is available. Parking does get more challenging on the weekends, and “drop in” Tucker guests will be able to park on a first come first served basis, unfortunately competing for space with those using the Harding Truck Trail. Reserved parking for registered program participants is available if the public parking area is full.

Restrooms: Restrooms are available on site, and are restricted to Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary visitors.

Fees: Currently there is no plan to charge a fee to visit Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary on your own, but donations are appreciated. Programs have fees associated with them. Sign up for our email list, HERE, to be informed of scheduled programs, or check our Events Calendar.
