ASHLAND, Neb. (AP) — Wildlife Safari Park in eastern Nebraska has opened for the season.

The park at Ashland will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through October.

The park offers four miles of drive-through North American wildlife viewing, where visitors can see a variety of animals in their natural habitats, including elk, black bears, wolves and bald eagles. A hiking trail and petting zoo are also part of the more than 60-acre park.

The park is operated by Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium and is located off Interstate 80, near the Strategic Air and Space Museum and Eugene T. Mahoney State Park.
