Grizzly Bear Hibernation Den Live Camera

Want to see what happens during hibernation? Check out our live camera and check-in on grizzly bears Mistaya and Koda as they complete their second hibernation.

It all began with a tree nursery. Millions of saplings and a hundred years later, the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo remains a cornerstone of ecology, inspired learning and lasting memories in the Prairies. Today, this National Historic Site boasts carefully crafted gardens, restored heritage buildings, a great new naturally-themed playground and Saskatchewan’s only CAZA-AZAC accredited zoo. Whether your visit is lively and exciting or quietly reflective, this distinctly-Saskatchewan experience is sure to be a memorable one!

Where are the Feeders?

The public feed stations are no longer available at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm park and Zoo.  Why did the Zoo remove the feed stations? There are several reasons including animal welfare, health, pest management and safety. Thank you for respecting the animal diets by not feeding any animals at the Zoo.
