Reston Zoo is now Roer’s Zoofari. Its new owners are Vanellsa Stoffel and Jacob Roer.
"Caring for animals has been an important part of our lives," said Roer, a third generation Arizona rancher, "Being able to share that experience with this community is a dream come true."
The zoo will continue to offer hands-on, educational encounters for those of all ages. "We are very excited to join the greater Reston community as a venue for learning about animals through discovery," said Stoffel, who previously helped open and operate Bearizona Wildlife Park in Williams, Arizona.
Zoo opens at 9 a.m. daily and offers its last safari wagon ride at 5 p.m. It is located at the corner of Hunter's Mill Road and Baron Cameron Drive in Vienna.
