Bearizona Wildlife Park

March 26th, 2011 by Del & Sheryl Terry

Come stay with us at Grand Canyon B&B and experience a great addition to the attractions of Northern Arizona.

Eric English, of ABC Channel 15 in Phoenix, wrote the following article in 2010:

‘WILLIAMS, AZ – A new attraction is trying to grab some of the millions of visitors that flock to the Grand Canyon every year. Bearizona is a 150 Acre ‘drive-through wildlife park’ that promises to give you a close encounter of the wild kind. Visitors drive their own vehicles through the park, which is loaded with big horn sheep, buffalo, and of course, bears–all roaming about giant pens.

“I really hope that when people come to Bearizona, they make a connection with the animals,” Vanessa Stoffel, the park’s chief operating officer said.  The park is planning for the future, raising young wolf, fox and bear cubs from infancy.  Staff plan the addition of bobcats, lynx and brown bears, and hope to grow into one of the larger North American wildlife collections.  They want to give visitors a new respect for the creatures.

“See the animals in their natural environment, and then when they return to wherever they are from, in the woods or in a park, they look around and they sense the importance of that habitat to the animals,” Stoffel said.

Bearizona was designed to showcase environmentally friendly construction as well.  “We’ve tried to build the park as green as possible.”  Many of the animal’s habitats are created from recycled materials.

The security cabin is a recycled RV, and a giant waterfall is made from several old busses and cars.  “A lot of the materials that we used in our waterfalls and rock features are old junkers and busses. The scrap metal is the framework for our big rock features,” Stoffel said.  The addition of solar panels and a water reclamation system will help lessen the park’s impact on the Kaibab Forest, while allowing people to see some other natural wonders that can be elusive.’

As of today there are two new additions.  Doc and Sadie were born early this Spring.  See their ‘birth announcement’ as shown on Phoenix NBC Channel 12 at: http://www.bearizona.com/bearizona-welcomes-channel-12-news-team .  More new borns are expected as we get closer to Summer.

The drive-thru park opened the 10th of Mar for the 2011 season and will be open daily from dawn to dusk until ‘snow covers the ground and stays (usually around the end of November each year).
