It’s tea time at Oakland Zoo and you are cordially invited! Bring an adult, bring your Teddy, and learn all about bears. Enjoy a morning of snacks, activities, books and play while making and delivering an enrichment gift to the zoo’s very own sun bears. When the fun is done, you’ll get a special thank you present.
Coming Soon...Teddy Bear Tea with Friends, where each time you’ll learn about a different zoo animal. Lions and tigers and- baboons?! Oh My!
