Polar bear event for adults with autism at Como Zoo
Adults with autism, ages 18+, are invited to join us on Dec. 9 from 8:30-10 a.m. at Como Park Zoo & Conservatory for a Polar Bear Enrichment event. Participants will meet a polar bear zookeeper to learn how they train these white giants, prepare and observe polar bear enrichment, and explore the award-winning Polar Bear Odyssey exhibit without the crowds. As a bonus, the Como Zoo polar bears Buzz and Neil are celebrating their 22nd birthdays on Dec. 9! Class participants are able to enjoy the zoo after the class. This class is designed for individuals who do not need direct service professional supports or supervision. The cost is $5 for residents of ramsey and Dakota Counties and $15 for residents of all other counties. The discount fee is made possible for residents of Ramsey and Dakota County though the Dakota and Ramsey County Autism Grant. Space is limited. Click here for more information and to register.
