> Saturday Oct 2, 2021 at 3:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join the Calgary Zoo for an evening of dining and discovery as you immerse yourself in conversations about bears of all types. Start the evening with a visit to the bear habitats in the beautiful Canadian Wilds. Next, head to the Safari Lodge to enjoy a three-course “Canadian” and “bear” themed dinner prepared by the Zoo's award-winning culinary team. During dinner, there will be presentations led by members of the Animal Care, Health and Welfare team to talk about their work caring for both the grizzly and the black bears.
