A Sanctuary for Kids and Wildlife and Nature Lovers

Welcome to the Sanctuary

Welcome to the Sanctuary!

We are located in Summer Lake, Oregon, which is in the high desert Southeast Oregon.  The Sanctuary consists of 560 acres.  Three hundred acres are wetlands that have 20 ponds ranging in size from 2 to 40 acres.  Our ponds are stocked with rainbow trout and have huge large mouth bass. Since we are in the Pacific Fly Way, thousands of birds land and fly over during migration.  We are four miles north of the ODFW Wildlife Refuge.  The birds know they are safe at our Sanctuary.   The Sanctuary provides a perfect spot for bird watching and trophy fly fishing.


We welcome youth organizations throughout the state to come and stay and experience nature first hand.

We welcome bird watchers, nature enthusiasts, and fly fishermen also.

Come visit us soon!



All of us need help

help than others do,
and from different sources.

Many young people
are disadvantaged
by circumstances they
can neither control
nor even understand.

Most will remain in                             
that mode without
outside assistance.

is dedicated to indentifying
and providing hope
for those young people
