Brown bears, Koda and Mistaya, are turning 10!  Join us as we celebrate their birthday on Friday, August 28, 2015, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the brown bear enclosure in the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo.

Zookeepers have planned a special picnic lunch for the bears on their big day and there will be “cub” cakes provided to children (first-come, first-served).

The Saskatoon Zoo Society will also be hosting “investigation stations” to learn more about these animals along with face painting and a photo booth for children, so bring your camera!

The Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo and the Saskatoon Zoo Society welcome everyone to enjoy the birthday celebration, free with the purchase of regular Zoo admission.

Donations will be accepted and put toward the purchase of equipment that will enhance the bears’ enclosure.  Also, for every $40 of brown bear “Adopt-a-Critter” purchased on August 28, 2015, $10 will be donated toward new equipment.
