Former Wildlife Sanctuary Sidesteps Conditional Use Permit

The Lawrence County Commission determined that the Wild Permaculture Education Farm (formerly the Spirit of the Hills Wildlife Sanctuary) does not currently need a conditional use permit, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The president of the sanctuary’s board, Dr. Tina Brents-Barnhart, provided an update of the facility on the commission.

Currently, the former sanctuary still houses numerous animals, but the board plans to rehome the animals and then operate as an educational agricultural facility. The facility is also no longer accepting new animal drop-offs.
