Work has already started on Bearizona’s expansion, which will include a new gift shop, restaurant and office space that will hopefully be open in May. In mid-February, Drill Tech workers hit water in a well they’re drilling on Bearizona Wildlife Park’s grounds. The well will help serve the new development, as well as a possible hotel in the future.
