At the Zoo - February 23 / 10:00 am

Join us for Polar Bear Awareness Weekend on Saturday, February 23 and Sunday, February 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event is FREE with Zoo admission.

Meet us inside Rocky Coasts Gallery to learn about Anoki’s daily care and the Zoo’s partnership with Polar Bears International (PBI), enjoy interactive stations, games, and crafts, and find out what you can do to help save polar bears from extinction.

On Sunday only from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., Amerks goaltender Adam Wilcox and defenseman Jack Dougherty will be at the Zoo to help raise awareness for polar bear conservation. The players will be available for a special meet-and-greet and to sign autographs.

For a donation to polar bear conservation, guests may enter to win one of three prizes:
1. A behind-the-scenes experience with Anoki
2. A view of Anoki and her habitat from the roof of Rocky Coasts Gallery
3. A one-of-a-kind paw print painting made by Anoki
