Week in Reston

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.
