Hollister Hills SVRA Booth

Hollister Hills SVRA is excited to return with our wildlife tabletop displays and R/C Jeeps. The always-popular R/C Jeeps allow individuals to try their luck at Rock Crawling, a popular Off-Highway activity. Using a 1/10 scale model of a Jeep Rubicon participants will maneuver over various obstacles as they follow a set course. The goal here is to drive slow allowing you to have more control over the vehicle as you traverse each obstacle.

The tabletop displays allow all who are interested to learn about various animals present at HHSVRA through pictures and tactile props. The popular “Birds of Prey” tabletop identifies what these birds are, common types found at HHSVRA, and what makes them different from other birds. The “Wildlife” tabletop highlights common mammals found at HHSVRA and allows those who are interested to touch various fur pelts and look at animal tracks and skulls.

Located in the Specialized Kids’ Play Area.  Open during Expo hours.
