Polar Bear Birthday Party

Join us on Saturday, January 19th from 11am to 1pm for the zoo's annual Polar Bear Birthday Party!

We celebrate the time of year during which wild polar bears are born in their dens, along with an honorary birthday for our polar bears! We are partnering with Copper River Seafoods this year as they have generously offered to make a large ice fish and ice "cake" for the occasion, to be unveiled in the habitat at 11am. Check out our blog post to learn more about how these treats are being created, along with images by John Gomes!

We will have smores for visitors, polar bear critter items to explore and a coloring station for kids to warm up! Our Gift Shop, Coffee Shop and Discovery Center will all be open as well. We hope you will join us for this wintery celebration of an iconic Alaskan species - the polar bear!
