KEEPER KIDS

Designed for kids ages 5-12, this unique hands-on 30-minute program teaches kids about grizzly bear eating habits. Then they will accompany the naturalist into the bear habitat to hide food for the bears. After the food is hidden, they can see first-hand how bears use their sense of smell to search out the food they had hidden.

This is a first-come first-serve activity offered twice a day in the summer. Space is strictly limited to 30 kids per session. Sign up by the admissions counter no later than 15 minutes before the program starts on the day that you wish to take part. There is a $5 participation fee; all other programs are free with the price of admission. Kids can choose their favorite animal button as a souvenir. Check for scheduling.
