Are you ready to get a little closer to our three bears? Come join Sadie, Kenai and Haines – the stars of our Russia’s Grizzly Coast exhibit during this interactive education program at the Minnesota Zoo!

During your adventure you will learn about our three bears, their personalities and what makes them special. You will tour behind-the-scenes to see the kitchen where the bears’ meals are prepared daily. Next, you will go to the training window with one of our bear trainers for a truly unique introduction to Sadie, Haines and/or Kenai.

Enrichment is an important part of our bears’ lives and you will experience this first-hand as you give our bears their enrichment items for the day.  You will receive a piece of artwork, too.  Our bears can’t wait to meet you!
