Adult and Children's
Special Needs Program

Each week, groups of children and adults with physical or development challenges visit Watermelon Mountain Ranch and interact with the animals.

The individuals experience the joy of being around the animals and the unconditional love that each has to give. The individuals also help out with special projects around the Ranch. They're learning valuable lessons in responsible animal care—and having fun too.

For more information on this program or to schedule a group please contact our volunteer coordinator at 505-267-6227 or via email at
