What is PEEP?
The Predator Exclusion and Educational 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. Whether you are a beginning farmer, urban homesteader, or just want to learn how to keep farm animals and wildlife safe, our education barnyard is the place for you! Our PEEP program is a great alternative to school sports and other extracurricular activities. If your child loves animals, the outdoors and is nature oriented, they will flourish in our PEEP program.
COST: $300 per 6 months.
