Cub Room Makeover

Our new Cub Room will engage children of all ages to come and explore the world of black bears.  Children and cubs learn by play and socialization.  The Cub Room allows exploration by touch, and educational displays that can be manipulated and colored. The man-made den allows kids to act like bears and crawl inside and explore.
