Are you ready to get a little closer to our three bears? 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, enjoy one-of-a-kind experiences as you meet zoo keepers, journey behind-the-scenes to multiple locations, and see our grizzly bears closer than almost anyone else. Offer a bear a breakfast snack before they head out onto exhibit for the day, toss them special “enrichment” treats from above their exhibit, and help prep the “dinner meal” for the three bears to eat later that day. Throughout the morning, learn about grizzly bears in the wild and our bears at the Zoo, including their personalities and what makes them unique.

Experience the awe-inspiring moment of meeting a grizzly bear. Sadie, Kenai, and Haines can’t wait to meet you!

Note: This program involves climbing a set of stairs and crouching and stepping through a small doorway. If you are unable to do so, please contact us so we can adjust the experience to fit your needs.
