Bear Awareness Week

May 14 – 20, 2 pm at the Bear Overlook

Meet with members of the American Association of Zoo Keepers, AAZK on the 14th, and our Animal Care Team all week at our bear overlook to learn about coexisting with the bears that live in North Carolina and keeping wildlife wild! There will be a bear Q&A every day at 2 pm, and AAZK will be joining throughout the day. Stop by to ask all your bear questions, get your Spring into Action stamp, and grab a temporary tattoo!
