Wildlife Conservation Ranch Set to Open in White Mountains

A family located in the Eager-Springerville area is planning to open a new 65-acre wildlife conservation ranch. R Lazy J Wildlife Ranch is planning to open to the public on September 1st.

Focusing on breeding, conservation, and education, the park will offer an animal Safari with up-close-and-personal encounters in unique small group tours.

The husband and wife team of Vanessa and Jacob Roer feel like they can provide the ability to blend both of their backgrounds – their Arizona western roots and animal conservation. Offering encounters with roaming hoofstock, avian species, primates, and more, the R Lazy J Wildlife Ranch will serve to educate local students and curious travelers on the importance of animal conservation, and the wonders of the animals that dwell on the premises.

The ranch will be home to birds, mammals, and reptiles originating from all over the world that are best suited to the White Mountain environment. The Roer’s will provide tours of the facilities in small groups of visitors.
