Gilcrease Nature Sanctuary
There are ample opportunities to walk on the wild side in Las Vegas, and not all of them involve a stroll along the Strip! In Las Vegas and Henderson, you can also find bird and animal sanctuaries, trails, preserves, wetland parks and even a lion habitat where you can actually get up close and personal with some of the most amazing creatures in the wild. All these opportunities exist right within the greater Las Vegas area, so there is no excuse to avoid being one with nature.
You may not be able to get as up close and personal at some places as you could at the Las Vegas Zoo, but there are numerous other spots where children can still pet the animals and have a true “hands-on” experience.
There are no lack of opportunities for those who love pets in the Las Vegas Valley.
Dogs, cats, birds, snakes and tortoises are just waiting for a loving home and these rescue organizations offer pet adoptions as a great addition to any family.
