Bring your favorite teddy bear friend to the Zoo! This “beary” fun day will feature children’s crafts and storytelling focusing on Bear Awareness and the facts about real bears.
FREE admission for children under age 12 who bring their teddy bear to the “Teddy Bear Clinic” and are accompanied by a paying adult.
By mid-summer, the zoo announced that the little guy was here to stay, but he would need a more suitable habitat.
This month, while everything is a little slow, the zoo is working on raising enough money to construct Rochan’s new home.
From his dreams of tree-top sunbathing to a 24/7 bamboo buffet, Rochan deserves only the best. In order to help build his posh pad, the zoo needs your help! Your donation today will help them turn $75,000 into $150,000. Every dollar you donate will be matched 1:1 by the Werth Family Foundation Challenge Grant.
Remember, the Beardsley Zoo vas the victim of state funding cuts several years ago, and depends upon public fundraising to continue running. It is Connecticut’s only zoo, and we are fortunate to have it located so close to Orange.
