OC Parks hosts Bear Awareness Day at OC Zoo

Join the County of Orange and OC Parks for Bear Awareness Day at the OC Zoo on Saturday, May 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Gather family and friends for a day of bear-themed activities, zookeeper chats and more.

The OC Zoo’s annual Bear Awareness Day invites families to learn more about the black bear while enjoying various fun-filled activities including crafts for kids and special zookeeper chats about bears. Bear Awareness Day will also feature a learning station where families can find more information about bear conservation and research, learn how to “bear proof” camping sites and what to do if you encounter a bear.

Bear Awareness Day is free with a paid admission ticket to the zoo, which costs $2 per person (ages 2 and under are free). Parking is $5 per vehicle and reservations are not required.
