The Real Wedding Crashers

Move over Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, the real Wedding Crashers are about to show us what happens when you don’t properly clean up after a backyard wedding reception. Grizzly brothers Keema and Denali will ransack a mock reception set-up in their exhibit, complete with bouquets, wedding cake, ice sculpture and wrapped gifts. Zookeepers and conservation experts will be on hand to teach you the safety tips you can follow to avoid dangerous encounters like this in your yard or on your next camping or hiking adventure. 

Through the zoo's Living Northwest conservation program, the spotlight also shines on other Pacific Northwest native wildlife with activities to help you learn how to coexist with wolves, raptors, butterflies and more.
