Það sem verður gert

As you drive into the refuge, you will be immersed into a magical setting, surrounded by hundreds of trees and desert animals roaming freely. Being able to observe these animals in their natural habitat will be an experience you won't forget. FYI, with over 100 ravens here, please be advised that they are very smart, very social, and love to talk! They may even bring you a special present that they have picked up from the desert floor! You can also sit right next to a tortoise and watch the bunnies & squirrels run & play. You will be introduced to Ozzy, Spirit, Cuckoo, Valentine, & Sweetie Pie - the handicapped ravens that live in the aviary. It is a thrill to be up close and meet them. Your hostess is very knowledgeable about the surrounding desert and species. This is an experience that is wonderful for adults & kids!! However, A Special Note About Young Children: When the tortoises are out of hibernation in the summer, this is a more engaging activity for young children When they are hibernating, the bulk of this Experience is sitting and watching the wildlife activity from an observation point, which can be very boring to young ones. Please keep in mind if you bring your little ones that there is no place to play or run around or be loud.
Other things to note
The start time for this Experience changes. On warm summer days, early morning visits are the best to see animal activity. Ravens, however, talk to you all day long. Also, young children might get bored with just watching wildlife activity. There is no place for them to play or run around.

I am the founder of Kitty's Wildlife Refuge & Rescue in Sky Valley, CA in the Coachella Valley. I have been doing rescues in this area for 25 years. The Refuge is located on a private ranch in rural Sky Valley, and is a very special place to hundreds of indigenous desert animals - rabbits, squirrels, roadrunners, coyotes, ravens, hawks, doves, song birds, tortoises, and other migrating species, with a tortoise sanctuary & raven aviary. There is lots of animal activity, and you can watch all of this in a beautiful, natural setting. Morning visiting times vary according to temperatures. During the middle of the day in the heat of summer, all of the animals will be hunkered down napping, so maybe you should be, too! There is also an overnight rental, Kitty's Wildlife Guest Quarters, available at the ranch.

Kitty walked us through a wonderfully memorable experience. Having the opportunity to hear about all of her animals including the tortoises, the dogs, and especially the ravens was very interesting and intriguing. Highly recommended! Perfect family outing.

Kitty’s Wildlife Refuge was an awesome experience for adults and families alike. You’ll get to meet some awesome rescue animals (including my personal favorite, the desert tortoises) and hear some uplifting stories from Kitty herself. Highly recommend stopping here for a morning tour before spending a day in Joshua Tree National Park.

My granddaughter and I had a wonderful time visiting Kitty and learning about her animals. We visited in the middle of July and I was expecting it to be uncomfortably hot but we were in the shade almost the whole time so it was actually quite pleasant. I highly recommend this experience.

Absolutely loved meeting Kitty, her ravens and all the other wonderful wildlife at the sanctuary. Kitty is the definition of someone living in their purpose. She goes to great lengths to ensure the safety and well-being of these animals and I just felt such love and care during my visit. Kitty also let me show up earlier in the day just so I could meet the tortoises before it got too hot. She's incredibly accommodating and a wonderful host, I'll definitely be back ☺️🤍
