Join us for Bear Awareness Week!

9 - 11 AM: Bear bio facts in the plaza

11:30 AM: Teddy Bear parade starting in the front plaza. Guests are encouraged to bring their own bears or purchase an adorable sloth bear plush from the Safari Trader Shop.  All bears will parade to the bear area where they will get a chance to see Zaara, the sloth bear cub, and hear a bear keeper chat.  Zoo mascots will participate in the parade and be available for photos at the end of the parade.  A special ambassador animal from the farm will participate in the parade!

All willing teddy bears will get a health checkup and then receive a coupon for a free train ride.

The cost for all these bear activities is included in the regular Zoo admission prices.  Come out to learn about Zaara, our sloth bear cub and other species of bears in the world, including the American black bear found in Arkansas!

We invite you to come and learn why it is important to be Bear Aware!  Come love our bears and come love your Little Rock Zoo!
