Houstonians learned the bear essentials at the Houston Zoo during bear awareness day this weekend. The zoo set up special booths so visitors could see bear skulls and learn about conservation. Zookeepers also performed skits to teach families how to set up bear proof campsites and what to do if they have a close encounter.

The zoo's two bears later came out to say hello.
