Teddy Bear Tea with Friends!

It’s tea time at Oakland Zoo and you are cordially invited! Bring an adult, bring your stuffie, and learn all about one of our Zoo’s special animals. Enjoy a morning of snacks, activities, books and play while making and delivering an enrichment gift straight to the zoo animal you’ve been learning about. When the fun is done, your child will receive a surprise-filled treat bag to take home. Visit the Teddy Bear Tea with Friends! page for more information.
