Environmental Education is our reason for being here! We are passionate about saving wildlife and helping you live a more environmentally friendly life.

Ame is available for interactive presentations and engaging workshops!  Check out our EVENTS page to view upcoming programs. She is available for speaking engagements, workshops and programs. Ame is available for consultations in organic gardening and farming; developing wildlife habitat and managing wildlife problems humanely. 

 We offer programs in Environmental Science, Organic Gardening, Alternative Energy, Kentucky Wildlife, Water Quality and Native American Studies. Depending on your desired program your class may include educational animals, hands on activities, and/or discussions.  

Ame also writes curriculum for teachers and home-schools. You can check out her writing website.

All our programs have fees. 100% of these monies go directly back into our programs. Our education programs are an important way that we raise money to feed our animals and pay for medical care. Members receive a discount on classes and garden produce. 


We offer educational TOURS of the farm where you can learn about our organic agriculture, alternative energy, and wildlife habitat programs. Opportunities to meet and greet education animals, see the gardens and visit the pond. Please note: wildlife in our rehabilitation program are not on display.  Cost $10/adults and $5 for children age 2-14.

We offer summer enrichment programs for public and home schools, scouts and day cares. Our programs align with Ky Core Content/STEM/ Ky Environmental Science benchmarks and fulfill many scouting badges. We believe learning about agriculture and science is best learned by experiencing. We offer a hands on approach – whether your student is milking a goat or looking at creek water under a microscope- they will make connections to the environment we live in. 

We are not open to the public. All tours and educational programs are scheduled. Please call Ame to make an appointment or discuss class opportunities. 859-242-1037 or email her at foxruneec@gmail.com
