Bear Enrichment – Watch as Bear Educators spread food or toys in the enclosure for the resident bears to discover. Feel free to engage Bear Educators with questions regarding our ambassador bears at this time. Watch the bears as they forage and discover a variety of foods hidden within their enclosures. At times toys or objects may be placed in the enclosure for the bears to examine and play with.

Power Point Program - "Meet our Bears" – A brief introduction to Ted, Lucky and Holly.

Behind the Scenes – As the days of summer grow warmer it may become necessary to take visitors on a "behind the scenes" walk to see our resident bears. Every visitor is guaranteed to see bears at the North American Bear Center.

All programs listed above will be included in your admission fee to the North American Bear Center.
