The Lakota Botanical and Wildlife Sanctuary is dedicated to wildlife protection and the preservation of endangered forest medicinal plants. Conservation of this 65 acre property is vital to the ecosystem in our small corner of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Home to Moose, bear, bobcat, coyote, turkey, hawks, rare birds that have lost much of their habitat, and many other beautiful woodland creatures. We protect trillium, lady’s slipper, goldthread, solomon seal, gravel root, coltsfoot, boneset, blue cohosh, and black cohosh and many more.
Offering retreats and herbal medicine, this is a healing land. We were honored to host Mayan Elder Nana Wilma from Guatemala who visited to share her land healing rituals.
We have slowly and tirelessly transformed the land to ensure the plants and animals here are safe. Also home to The Burdock Fund, a 501c3 in process, which brings awareness to and support for women’s empowerment tied to forest conservation.
We honor animals as our esteemed guides and healers, just like the plants. In fact, we humans developed much of our knowledge of medicinal plants by observing how animals used them!
We have a deep commitment to protecting animals, we of course never test our products at the shop on animals, and we nurture the Lakota Wildlife and Botanical Sanctuary in an act of reciprocity.
You are welcome to come to the sanctuary by appointment and for events offered here.
Please consider a donation to support our efforts for this beautiful property, and the animals, plants and healing work that takes place here. Thank you.
