“A hidden gem in Athens”

Bear Hollow is a facility of the ACC Department of Leisure Services. Since it's creation in the late 1940's, the zoo has undergone many changes having started as a private collection of wild animals, which had been donated to the Athens zoo. Currently, the zoo contains only non-releasable native wildlife housed in natural habitat exhibits. The zoo is always growing and changing thanks to community support through volunteers and donations,yet it always remains committed to conservation through the education of its visitors. By educating the public, by allowing even one person to forge a lasting connection with an animal, Bear Hollow helps motivate people to protect wildlife and the habitats that they depend upon.
