Animal Ark in Reno

Animal Ark, originally uploaded by Jeff Sullivan.

Animal Ark is an animal rescue and retirements center near Reno Nevada. Their birds of prey show is particularly good, but they also have a selection of felines plus wolves, bears, and so on.
Call ahead to make sure that you make it in tme for the bird show. It's held shortly after their opening time of 10am while the air is cooler and denser, facilitating the flight of the raptors.

It's an excellent place to go after an event such as the Great Reno Balloon Race (the weekend after Labor Day), and it's very close to the Reno Air Races on the following weekend as well.
