This is a virtual cache where a picture must be submitted showing you or your group in front of the polar bear you see with Morgan on this main cache page.

This is a very easy virtual cache to do and can be done by anyone of any age, even the handicapped Cacher can give this one a go!

Enjoy the day at the SENECA PARK ZOO with the whole family. I took my wife and daughter Morgan who you see in the cache picture on this nice warm summer day to enjoy all the animals and while here decided to turn this into a nice mini adventure that you Geocachers could do as well.
The coordinates are to the entrance where you will find the bear, and you MUST show your GPSR in the photo when it is submitted as a find, any other photo will be declined.

The kids will enjoy the feeding portion of the zoo where you can actually buy food and hand it to the animals.
While here at the park be sure to look up several of the other Geocaches hidden nearby such as the SENECA TRAILS CACHE

Enjoy your visit to the park and be sure to have a good time. You can also post the coordinates of your favorite animal you see within the zoo!

Park fee's are listed above in the comments section.

I am looking for older caches so I decided to start logging my finds here too.

Chaperoning son's field trip here, so of course I had to log this find! The polar bear display is a little different, with two large stuffed polar bears instead of the one found in some of these posts.

Unfortunately, I didn't have a camera, and none of my fellow moms was handy with a camera at GZ. I did got one of the other moms to take a picture of my son and I at the sign post near the gift shop, and I'll post that picture as soon as she sends it to me.

We were at the Zoo for a little fun and relaxation. My youngest son is a ZooTeen again this year and was giving us a personal tour. He led me right up to the cache spot but would not get in the picture with me "they're too many kids around". Great day and a great spot.

O.K., we found this a year ago when Evan was finishing third grade... and today he is finishing fourth grade! I'm just a little slow getting around to logging it. I remember now, I can't get the pictures to load (too big of a file). Oh no!

I had an opportunity to do this cache while on a morning field trip with my preschool class. This zoo is really nice and the polar bear seemed to enjoy swimming in the nice, cool water!

We couldn't waste this beautiful day,
So we hopped in the car and was on our way.

We headed to the zoo and wanted to find,
the big polar bear that's one of a kind.

We had a nice walk along the Genesee trail,
we soon found the polar bear without fail.

We snapped a few pictures of the whole crew,
What a nice day we had at the zoo!

Thanks, Quinn!

Went to the zoo to see the giraffe and remembered this virtual cache was there. Enjoyed watching the polar bear swim up to the glass.
