Bear Affair: Pacific Northwest Conservation
presented by Brown Bear Car Wash

Sat, 8 Jun, 2013 9:30 AM - 3:00 PM

 

What happens when food isn’t stored properly or garbage is carelessly left out while living in the backyard of bears or kayaking in bear territory? 

Get a glimpse of the disastrous results and learn what steps you can take for bear-proofing at Woodland Park Zoo’s Bear Affair: Pacific Northwest Conservation presented by Brown Bear Car Wash. Enjoy activities focused on bears, wolves, raptors, and other Pacific Northwest wildlife, what these animals need to survive in the wild and how humans can co-exist.
