This year we will be open during the Thanksgiving weekend so that you can enjoy our animals in the cooler temperatures of late fall, when they are active and frisky. The coyotes and bobcats are putting on their gorgeous winter coats, while the bears are gorging themselves in preparation for their long winter hibernation.
Do you have any raw turkey necks and gizzards that you did not use for your holiday meal? They make marvelous treats for our carnivores. If you are feeling extra generous, we would be very grateful for your donation of an uncooked low-sodium turkey to supplement our big cats’ regular diets. Our animals love raw poultry and we sincerely appreciate any help towards our winter feed bills!
The Ark is situated at 6,000 feet of altitude, so dress for outdoor fun in changeable autumn weather – anything from brisk and beautiful to snow showers. We encourage you to call on event days prior to your departure, as severe weather or unsafe facility conditions may cancel the festivities.
