Project Overview

The Lake Superior Zoo is northern Minnesota’s zoo, which is fully accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The Bear Country project will create educational exhibits using animals and the environment within a portion of the area of land that is currently the former Polar Shores. The project will utilize some of this existing structure by renovating it to meet or exceed current animal exhibit standards for the brown bear set by the Association of Zoo and Aquariums (AZA). Legacy funds will be used to complete phase one of the bear country project.
