Bear Awareness Weekend

B-eary fun activities await guests at Brookfield Zoo's annual Bear Awareness Weekend. Guests of all ages can attend special Zoo Chats about the zoo's three species of bears-grizzly, polar, and sloth-and find out what challenges they face in the wild, as well as what conservation efforts are being done to help wild bear populations. The zoo's volunteers will have exploration carts featuring a variety of bear artifacts for guests to touch. At Hamill Family Play Zoo (additional fee applies), youngsters can partake in bear-themed crafts. For further information, visit or call (708) 688-8000.
