Welcome to Buckley Wildlife


WE'RE SORRY BUCKLEY WILL BE CLOSED Nov 9 thru 24. While Life Adventure Center does NOT allow public hunting on its lands, we recognize that hunting is present on immediately adjacent properties. With this in mind and FOR YOUR SAFETY, ALL of our trail systems are closed to visitors at both our main facility in Versailles as well as Buckley Wildlife Sanctuary during the modern gun season. We regret any inconvenience this causes and appreciate your understanding. We hope you’ll visit again when we reopen on November 25!
