Bear Hollow Zoo is a zoo with a difference. It rescues local animals with physical health problems, provides them with excellent housing, food, and veterinary care, and shows them to the public to raise awareness about the animals that live in the area. The zoo charges no admission and is set in a woody part of Memorial Park with lots of shade and picnic tables for lunch after viewing the animals.
Among the mammals at the zoo there is a black bear, a bobcat, a white-tailed deer, a Virginia opossum, and a river otter. There are birds: a bald eagle, a barred owl, a great horned owl, a red hawk, and a wild turkey. Birthday parties at the zoo include a custom tour and an animal encounter. School field trips may be booked with or without a picnic shelter for the group.
