Big Bear Alpine Zoo will be hosting its Flashlight Safaris each Saturday for the month of October (weather permitting). Gates open at 6:30 pm and the tour starts at 7 pm. Many of the animals that are hard to see by day come alive by night. Come see the sights, sounds and shadows of nature when the sun sets. Imagine having the eyes of a wild animal sparkle from the light of your flashlight or listening to the wolves and coyotes howl in total darkness.
Exploring the zoo after dark is an experience of its own. Come see how the mountain lions, bobcats, wolves, grizzly and black bears, and many other animals react to the night life.
Bring your own flashlights and dress warmly. Admission is $9 for adults, $6 for seniors (60+) and children from 3 to 10 years of age, and children under 3 years are free.
For more information on the Flashlight Safaris call (909) 584-1299.
