Be Bear Aware!

The Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens, located in Sanford FL, is right in the heart of black bear country. The Zoo wants to educate YOU on how to coexist peacefully with the Florida black bear. As both black bear and human population numbers rise, there has never been a more urgent time for community awareness and education on Florida’s largest land mammal.

In addition to the new, education-focused black bear habitat, the Central Florida Zoo is proud to offer FREE black bear awareness presentations made possible through funding from the Central Florida Foundation. These presentations are great for community groups like Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs, as well as homeowner’s associations, and more. The Zoo also presents throughout the year at public libraries throughout Seminole, Orange, and Volusia counties.

Time:  1 Hour
Dates:  Monday – Saturday
Cost:  FREE
Ages:  Adults*

Reservations: Please call Stephannie Allen at 407.323.4450 ext. 105 or email stephanniea@centralfloridazoo.org.
