The Wild Animal Sanctuary
One of the best parts of summer is spending time in the great outdoors and one of the perks of being outdoors is wildlife viewing. Stop by one of our state parks or national parks and check out the local fauna, or take advantage of a wild animal sanctuary to see more exotic wildlife. There is still plenty of time this summer in which to take a hike and look and animals. Bring the family or spend some time alone in these wildlife viewing areas.
