Predator Exclusion and Educational Barnyard Program (PEEP)

What is PEEP?


The Predator Exclusion and Educational Barnyard Program (PEEP) is an innovative interactive educational program designed to help people with conflicts between domestic and wild animals. By providing a physical learning lab, students and members of the community can learn ways to protect their livestock and pets from natural predation in ways that do not harm wildlife, so the ecology of the region can remain balanced.  


What can you see?


Come to our Educational Barnyard to see examples of exclusion techniques. At the moment we have a barn, night corral, free range chicken set up, catio, and fencing examples. By exploring our barnyard, you can learn ways to predator proof your own enclosures and experience beautiful Sonoma County agriculture. We also have a Wildlife Education Garden to show predator proofing techniques against garden pests and ways to attract pollinators. Want to get your hands on our delicious produce? Click here.
