Please help us preserve this beautiful place!

We provide space for quiet Prayer, Meditation and Self Reflection

  Some of the Earth's greatest landscapes are threatened by increased road construction, oil and gas exploration, mining and suburban development. We aim to protect a piece of our country's natural splendor at Sanctuary Cove and the areas around the base of Safford Peak.  
Sanctuary Cove is a private property open to the public, managed by All Creeds Brotherhood, Inc, a religious non-profit corporation. We rely on donations and event fees for our survival. We receive no funding from the government. Please donate or become a member and help us keep this dream alive.


PLEASE NO DOGS, MOUNTAIN BIKING OR DRONES ARE ALLOWED AT SANCTUARY COVE.

Feel free to explore the property on our walking trails, meditate and relax in our non-denominational Chapel, have lunch in our amphitheater or hike to the top of Safford Peak! Sanctuary cove is a popular location from which to access the more rugged and less traveled areas of Saguaro National Park.   

For professional use, Sanctuary cove offers reasonable pricing for photographers, memorial services, weddings, and overnight stays at our renovated adobe brick cottage.

Bat Conservation International’s Bats & Agave Initiative City-Wide Agave Planting April 27, 2019

  • 3-5 volunteers are needed to help plant 20-25 agaves at Sanctuary Cove, Saturday morning, April 27.
  • The work will be physical, wear sturdy boots, please bring your own tools, hat, gloves, sunscreen and water bottle.

The lesser long-nosed bat, a frequent Tucson visitor, and the federally-endangered Mexican long-nosed bat, are migratory pollinators and nectar feeders that depend on populations of wild agave.  Agaves spend their lives building up sugars for the moment when they send a massive flowering stalk up into the sky.  The flowering stalk is what provides food for bats and allows for bats to play their pollinating role, moving pollen between plants all along their migratory path from central Mexico up into the southwestern United States.  Unfortunately, agaves farmed to produce spirits like tequila and mezcal are harvested before they flower, as are wild agaves, and together with land conversion for agriculture, development, and climate change there’s tremendous pressure on the availability of wild flowering agave, threatening bat populations. Bat Conservation International (BCI) recently initiated a binational approach over the next ten years to bring about a more sustainable tequila and mezcal industry, to restore wild agave at scale, and to provide agave foraging habitat in a “bat-nectar corridor” from central Mexico to the southwestern United States to improve the conservation status of these pollinating bats. As part of this Initiative, and in conjunction with the Tucson Agave Heritage Festival https://www.agaveheritagefestival.com/, BCI will be conducting the first Tucson City-Wide Agave Planting Event on April 27, 2019  at several sites across Tucson, including Sanctuary Covehttps://sanctuarycove.org/ with the All Creeds Brotherhood, at three sites with the Tucson Audubon Society,http://tucsonaudubon.org/ and two additional sites with Pima County http://webcms.pima.gov/. Approximately 20-30 agaves will be planted at each site,  

If you would like to help, RSVP to management@sanctuarycove.org. You will need to sign a release.
