Don’t let winter’s chilly temps keep you inside!

Put on your warmest coat and boots and join us at
Animal Ark over the holiday weekends! Reno’s icy weather is perfect for viewing our lynx, bobcats, cougars, wolves and other wild residents playing in our winter wonderland.

Call prior to heading out, as we will update our recording to reflect any changes due to weather or facility conditions. Golf cart transport will not be available.
