Bear Awareness Day

Join us for Bear Awareness Day! Learn the right and wrong ways to camp in bear country. Keepers will pitch camp and have a picnic in the (empty) bear habitat, then they will depart and the bears will come in to investigate (and possibly destroy!) their campsite. Find out some cool bear facts and how you can help save bears in the wild. Kids can experience how to forage for food like a bear and color a bear mask!
 
All activities will be happening in or near our bear habitats. This event is free with your paid zoo admission and is free for zoo members!
