Full getaway is being rescheduled due to uncertainty about access to the National Park
Special dog-friendly hike with views of Zion still available — March 9, 2019  •  Springdale/Zion Canyon, Utah



Because Animals Matter is partnering with SpringHill Suites to host the second  Get Bark To Nature Zion Retreat this March — and this year is dog friendly!

This fundraiser event is certain to show your support of BAM's mission, programs, and pets in need while you treat yourself to an all-inclusive luxury weekend surrounded by the beauty and majesty of Zion Canyon.
It truly is the getaway that gives back.


All proceeds from this event will support BAM's many community programs built to spread humane education with the next generation and to help pets and people in need.
Visit the organization's website if you have any interest in learning more about BAM.



This all-inclusive Friday evening through Sunday morning retreat at the doorstep of Zion National Park will have you wanting for nothing.

Interested in a guided hike with incredible views of the National Park and surrounding areas? Maybe a guided bike ride is more your speed? Want to wake up and stretch in a yoga class before making your own path around Springdale?
With a variety of options on hand, you choose what suits your activity level and interests. We do the rest.



Welcome Reception


Join the fun upon arrival with a hot chocolate bar around the fire and meet some of BAM's own volunteers and adoptable dogs



SpringHill's delicious buffet and hot breakfast options are always included

Get To Know BAM


Learn more about BAM's programs direct from the volunteers

Free WiFi


Fret not if you need to stay connected while getting away

Dog Friendly Hike


Zion NP may not allow dogs on their most scenic hikes, but join a guided hike on Wire Mesa Trail outside the park to take it all in, with your dog

Barks & Brews Tasting


Try locally crafted beers from the Zion Canyon Brew Pub (or wine) paired with a range of delicious hors d'oeuvres and desserts while listening to local musicians

Inclement Weather Plans


Rain or shine the event will go on — the Wire Mesa Trail contains slickrock areas that make the trail unsafe when wet; the paved Pa'rus Trail in Zion is dog-friendly and will stand in for the more difficult trail

Fire Side Lunch


Enjoy a hearty lunch with a view after the loop hike; your choice of a vegan or meat stew and fresh locally-baked sourdough



Choose as many or as few of our included, guided activities as you like

Local Shopping


Enjoy wandering through Springdale's shops and galleries before the crowds

Pool and Jacuzzi

Enjoy taking a dip or paddling some laps in SpringHill's heated pool

Beer Samples


As a stand-alone event or part of the retreat, join BAM Saturday night at  SpringHill in Zion Canyon for an outdoor cocktail dinner and drinks that will satisfy your appetite, quench your thirst, AND support BAM's programs.

This evening event will feature locally-crafted beers from Zion Canyon Brew Pub, and wine, paired with a range of delicious hot and cold bites. Live music and an incredible setting serve to make the night unforgettable.

Tickets are $75 for one, $120 for two.

Postponed until further notice
