Looking for a little adventure in Ashe County North Carolina? Head over to the New River Zoo, Ashe County' s only zoo. The New River Zoo, under the supervision of the zoo's owner and noted naturalist Keith M. Stroud, operates off of 3581 Big Flatts Church Road in Fleetwood NC and is the home of exotic animals like ring tailed lemurs, monkeys, an Amazonian parrot, a Siberian lynx, Fennec foxes, a solitary caracal, spotted leopard, and African Serval, and several Muntjac deer and water buffalo. In addition to these rare varieties, the New River Zoo is home to over 70 species of animals including mammals, primates, monkeys and several reptiles. Many of the animals live in habitats that Stroud created after taking them on from private pet owners that could no longer care for them. Other animals came to New River Zoo when they were rescued from laboratories overseas or from situations in which they were being neglected or abused.

After opening in the fall of 2001, the New River Zoo briefly closed. However, the zoo reopened and visitors may now tour the zoo once again. Visit the New River Zoo Monday through Saturday from 10 to 6 and on Sundays from 1 to 5. Admission is just $6.00 for adults and $4.00 for kids ages 3-12.
