Bear Affair: Living Northwest Conservation Day
presented by Brown Bear Car Wash

Saturday, June 8, 2019 9:30 AM - 3:00 PM


As bears emerge from their winter slumber and forage for food in forests and urban areas, it’s time to become bear smart and ensure your camp site or backyard is safe from bears—and safe for bears, too!

Learn about the survival of bears, wolves, turtles, raptors, and other wildlife in the Pacific Northwest and what these animals need to survive in the wild, how to help keep them safe and how to coexist.

The zoo’s curious grizzly bear brothers, Keema and Denali, will crash the aftermath of a make-believe backyard birthday party complete with a picnic table, a kiddy pool, a grill with hot dogs, cupcakes, fruit bowls and non-safe garbage cans. Experts will share valuable bear-proof tips as the bears demonstrate what goes wrong when food and garbage aren’t stored properly.

RED, WHITE & zoo



Saturday & Sunday, June 29 - 30, 2019

It’s a Fourth of July picnic as Woodland Park Zoo’s animals— orangutans, lemurs, pigs, gorillas and more—are treated to star-shaped popsicles, watermelons or corn on the cob in celebration of Red, White & Zoo. The special treats are part of the zoo’s excellent animal care program to help enrich the lives of the zoo’s animals. The safe activities help encourage natural animal behavior, keep animals mentally and physically stimulated and engage zoo guests.
