Take Action: Create a Bear for a Brighter Future

Register Registration deadline is April 17, 2017. 


Andean bears live in the most biologically diverse region on earth, but populations throughout their range are vulnerable due to habitat loss and conflict with humans.  Join Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to support Future for Wildlife and Andean bears by participating in an interactive family learning opportunity.  Discover bear facts, partnerships and conservation, create and take home your own Andean bear plush with a brighter future promise and last but not least, visit these magnificent animals.  Through your active participation, proceeds from this class and the purchase of plush bears will fund a camera trap to help scientists in the field monitor wild populations.  Take action with us to secure a future for Andean bears!


Date: April 30
Time: 9:00 -11 a.m.
