Spring Visitors Weekend: West Place Animal Sanctuary, Tiverton

Interactive and educational tours will leave every half hour, for a total of 30 tours throughout the weekend.

West Place is also holding a spring plant sale, and visitors will explore the newly renovated and expanded gift shop filled with hand-made crafts, one-of-a-kind items created from upcycled farm materials, and three flavors of “farmbucha” – kombucha brewed on site by West Place Farmbrew.
