Visitors to ARK 2000 open houses board shuttles to the bear, lion, tiger, leopard and elephant habitats. Once you exit the shuttle you will be walking on grass, dirt, gravel, and sometimes paved surfaces, so please wear comfortable shoes. You will not touch any animal and all visitors will be required to stay a safe distance away from the animals. PAWS management, keepers and volunteers will be on hand to tell you about the animals and answer questions. A gift shop will be available on the day of the event. We accept cash, checks and major credit cards.
If you would like to bring a holiday gift for the animals we suggest any of the following favorites: Apples, Oranges, Bananas, Carrots, Squash, Pumpkins, Melons, Pears, Unsalted Peanuts, Fresh Mint Leaves and Fresh Rosemary. You may drop them off by the front gate, or near the gift shop table when you arrive, or as you're leaving. Thank you!
Folding wheelchairs and strollers may be taken on most shuttles.
