Welcome to Turtle Island

The Friendship CircleWe live, teach, breathe and believe in nature's governing truths. We interact with the beautiful clarifying teachings of nature as we interpret it's story. We are more about doing it - than talking about it. We invite you to visit us and experience all that is Turtle Island!

The programs at Turtle Island Preserve are powerful and effective. We dig deep, reaching profound connections within us, touching our ancestral roots. "SIMPLY REAL", we touch the sources of life directly, unshielded from nature's truths. Intimate and personal, we experience relationship building with the foundational essence of our existence.

The easiest way to see Turtle Island Preserve is to schedule your own personal Horse Drawn Carriage Ride with Eustace!

Please respect our privacy and educational programming by not showing up unannounced for a pop-in visit. Please call the Turtle Island office to schedule a visit and to request driving directions at (828) 265 -2267.
