Bear Path Acres Animal Education Center

Shug the grizzly bear didn't always love the spotlight. Before coming to Bear Path Acres Animal Education Center, she was claustrophobic, and accustomed to eating fried chicken instead of a more natural diet of deer. It took months of enrichment and training with the center's owner, Debbie Jeter, to coax Shug out of her shell. Today, however, Shug happily wanders her large enclosure, performing tricks for visitors when the mood strikes her.

Shug is one of many animals at the nonprofit center. Her companions include a tiger, foxes, tortoises, wolves, and even a striped skunk. Though the fauna vary by species, they share a single mission: to educate people on the wonders of wildlife and conservation. Guests can observe the animals during regular hours, or sign up for a twilight tour, during which the nocturnal creatures are more active and less prone to shout "Hey, pipe down!"

It's a small, intimate park. A variety of animals are housed there from exotic to domestic. The center is kept very clean and the help is passionate about their jobs. It's a wonderful day trip from Hampton roads. The admission price is worth it because you know you are benefiting the center.

I love the natural setting ; the freedom to watch and photograph the animals. Everyone is so pleasant and knowledgeable I will certainly return many times. I didn't see any Bear Path T shirts. I would like to buy one. I tell everyone about it. I so appreciate it. Thank you.
