Groundhog Day at the OKC Zoo


January 31, 2022 to January 31, 2022
10:00 AM until 01:00 PM


Features themed enrichment activities for Will & Wiley, the zoo's weather-aware grizzly bears. Because the Zoo does not have groundhogs in its animal population, the bears step in as official Groundhog Day gurus. Guests enjoy activities and information stations throughout the event. The black bears and grizzly bears will be receiving enrichment throughout the day.

Activities are:

  • Family-Friendly Activities and Conservation Education Station
  • Children’s Story Time: Little ones can hear a reading of Bear Snores On at 10:15 a.m.
  • Facebook Live Chats with the Zoo’s carnivore caretakers at 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Tune in at
  • The Zoo’s designated “town crier” will read the official proclamation at 10:30 a.m. adding a festive element in the spirit of early Groundhog Day traditions.
  • Animal Enrichment for the Zoo’s grizzly and black bears, 10:45 a.m. at the grizzly and black bear habitats.
  • Photo opportunities sponsored by Bob Moore Subaru.
