  1. Are you going to open in June?

    1. Woodstock Sanctuary is not opening for the month of June and will continue to share month-by-month updates on this status. We are putting the health and safety of the animals and staff first as the state begins to reopen. While we miss our weekend visitors, we ask that the public respects this decision.

  2. I don’t need a tour. Can I come and walk around by myself with a mask on?

    1. Out of care for the entire staff and the animals, we are currently limiting people on site. It’s a risk in exposing our staff to the virus, as it is spread through airborne droplets and remains contagious on surfaces.

  1. When will The Gray Barn reopen?

    1. Please subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media to receive first updates as to when our on site inn The Gray Barn will reopen.

    2. You can still currently buy gift certificates to stay at The Gray Barn for future stays.

  1. What will happen to my Gray Barn reservation?

    1. Our Hospitality Manager Leigh will be in touch with all people who have made a reservation if they are in the month of expected closure. Those who made a reservation will have the option to reschedule, donate the stay’s cost to the organization, or get a refund. Please email Leigh with any questions at

  1. Are you going to open at all this season?

    1. Woodstock Sanctuary is closely monitoring the state’s plan to reopen along with the status of COVID-19 cases. Considering we are a destination for New York City visitors as well as the surrounding Tri-State area, we are choosing to be very careful with the decision as when to open. We miss our visitors, inn guests, and volunteers, but must remain proactive.

    2. Please subscribe to our mailing list and follow us on social media to stay updated on when we will open.

  1. Can I volunteer?

    1. Woodstock Sanctuary’s volunteer program continues to be on hiatus until the organization reopens to the public in full. Please continue to check our Volunteer Page for updates. Thank you for wanting to volunteer!

  1. Is your internship program active?

    1. Woodstock Sanctuary’s internship program is currently open to accepting animal caregiving internships. Those interested in applying must adhere to the quarantine protocol in place: new interns must self-isolate in one of the on site lodges for two weeks before beginning their internship.
