Welcome!

CAMP 2020 CANCELLED DUE TO COVID! 😦

PETTING ZOO CLOSED UNTIL OCTOBER.

Bear Canyon Ranch and Petting Zoo (a division of Bear Canyon Amusements, LLC) is located at 8210 E Woodland Rd. In the beautiful town of Tanque Verde.

Our petting zoo is open to the public every 1st and 3rd weekends of the month. We will be open until June. The cost is $6 general admission and $4 for children 5 and under. Since these fees go directly towards supporting the care of our animals – donations are graciously appreciated, as are small bills. We can accept credit cards for an additional $1 processing fee.

We recently formed a 501c3 non profit (Tanque Verde Therapeutic Zoo, Inc.) which provides educational and therapeutic experiences for school groups, clubs, the elderly, people with disabilities and any other groups of people who can benefit from visiting our ranch and animals!  Please call us to discuss the options (temporarily closed due to COVID). Our animals and setting are unique in that we only involve critters that enjoy physical interactions with people and this is done in a natural environment.

Our goal is to provide scholarships for folks who can’t afford to take part in this unique experience.  Please, check out our newest venture at tvaztzoo.org! We are on Facebook, as well.
