Wildhaven Ranch near Lake Arrowhead is a wildlife sanctuary, education, and visitation center for endangered and indigenous wild animals. Created in 1994 and operated by the San Bernardino Mountains Wildlife Society, Wildhaven Ranch is a non-profit organization. Its mission is to preserve the wildlife indigenous to the San Bernardino Mountains and to leave a valuable heritage to our future generations. The purpose is to provide a protective environment where non-releasable wild animals can live out their lives in safety and peace. This wildlife sanctuary offers many educational programs for children and families to learn about local wild animals up close like bears, raccoons, bobcats, eagles, deer, coyotes, birds, and more.

“Preserving wildlife helps heal the human spirit”
Wildhaven is home to native and endangered species from the San Bernardino Mountains. The sanctuary houses wildlife that is unable to live successfully in the wild, often as a result of injury or human contact. Educational programs, both on and off-site, are offered to the public, providing crucial information about indigenous wildlife and how to co-exist, as well as an unforgettable chance to experience these animals personally. Wildhaven Ranch moved to its current 35-acre ranch in the community of Cedar Glen near Lake Arrowhead in 2000. Along with much of the Cedar Glen community, the animal sanctuary was devastated by the horrific “Old Fire” of 2003. But thanks to the dedication of their staff and volunteers, as well as the efforts of community and government leaders, Wildhaven Ranch is now fully functional with plans to expand.
To visit Wildhaven Ranch in Cedar Glen, you must call for reservations for admission information, rates, tours, birthday parties, or group events at 909-337-7389.
