Lee G. Simmons Conservation Park and Wildlife Safari
16406 292nd St., Ashland, NE 68003
The Lee G. Simmons Conservation Park and Wildlife Safari is an affiliate of Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. Located southeast of Ashland near I-80 Exit 426, visitors can drive through areas where herds of elk and bison roam. The park is also home to a pack of wolves, a sedge of sandhill cranes and a bale of turtles.
Two miles of trails await travelers eager to stretch their legs. Telescopes atop Elk Overlook allow for close-up observation of the animals. Wildlife-themed souvenirs and a snack bar make this a fun, quick break from the road, or a great first leg of a Cass County adventure.
