Ranger Assist Program

Go behind the scene during this two-hour adventure and get an incredible close-up while assisting our rangers with their daily chores.

Depending upon interest level, participants may help prepare and disperse Boo’s dietary supplements, walk the perimeter of his habitat, view his winter quarters, and spend more time with the staff ranger. This is a one-of-a-kind experience not to be missed by bear enthusiasts.
