Field Trips

During the non-summer months, Bear River Ranch loves to host Field Trips for organized groups, including; Schools, Scouts, Homeschoolers, Seniors and more! Our Animal Team will tour your group through our diverse animal area while answering questions and telling colorful stories about the antics and care requirements of animal family. Field Trips are scheduled early in the year and are on a "first come, first serve" basis.
