IRVINE’S PET POLICY:
We love all animals here at Irvine Nature Center, but we do not allow pets on our property at any time. When you come to explore nature at Irvine, please be respectful of the native habitat, our resident animals, and fellow visitors by leaving your pet at home. Pet waste is often not disposed of properly and can harm our fragile ecosystems. In addition, pets may negatively impact natural fauna as well as the experience of other visitors. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
A NOTE ABOUT INJURED ANIMALS:
At Irvine, many of the Animal Ambassadors in our care are rehabilitated animals. Please note, we are not licensed rehabilitators and are not able to help with, or take, injured animals. Should you encounter an injured animal and need advice, please contact one of our local rehabilitation centers:
Phoenix Wildlife Center at 410-628-9736 or www.PhoenixWildlife.org
Frisky’s Wildlife Sanctuary at 410-418-8899 or www.friskys.org
Thank you for working so hard to keep Irvine open during the pandemic. It’s a really wonderful place and our community is lucky to have it. – Irvine Visitor
