Are you smarter than your average Bear? Come experience a training session with our two North American Black Bears, Lewis and Clark. Our Zoo Keepers will take you behind-the-scenes where you can participate in a training session and then reward the brother bears by feeding them organic, locally-grown honeycomb.

The interactive encounter and education program includes a behind-the-scenes “bear lair” tour of the brothers’ night house. During this experience you will learn about bear conservation and find out simple choices that you can make to help keep wild bears safe, all while snapping photos and making memories to last a lifetime!
