Checking in with the security guard was quick and he gave us directions to the sanctuary which is at the back of the campus (it's the only part of the campus you can get out and look at).

P.S. dogs aren't allowed on the campus but if you're traveling through with your pup just keep them in the car and there shouldn't be any issues!
  • I drove there today and arrived during open hours and parked in the visitor parking, however when I walked up to the building, it was locked, and there were signs saying visitors must check in at the welcome center. Umm... it'd be helpful if we were told WHAT welcome center and WHERE it was located. Whatta bummer.
