Family Day at the Bear Den Zoo sponsored by Jockey Being Family: Waterford

July 17 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Jockey Being Family and WiFCC invite you to join us at the Bear Den Zoo & Petting Farm in Waterford. Each registrant for your family will receive an entry ticket into the Bear Den and lunch (sub sandwiches, chips, and drinks). Please note: lunch will be available from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. There is a limit of 5 tickets per household. This event is for Wisconsin’s adoptive, foster, guardianship, relative caregiver, and reunified families and individuals!

The event begins at 11 a.m. WiFCC staff will have a place for families to check in from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., and registrants will receive an email with these details as the date draws nearer. Learn more about the zoo at https://www.beardenzoo.com/. Additional snacks, food, and beverages are available for purchase at the zoo.

This event would be a great opportunity to invite your child’s birth/first family or previous foster family. We understand this may not work for all families, but encourage you to consider it. We hope to create an opportunity for children to have all their loved ones in one location whenever possible and create positive memories together. Please have each household register separately.

Please reach out to Christy at ctimm@cclse.org with any questions or accommodation needs for this event.
