Event Description:   Once known as Knowland Zoo, this 100-acre (40 ha) zoo is small but modern, with ample 21st century displays and exhibits.   Most of its animals are kept in relatively “natural” habitats, giving the park an uncrowded feeling that is respite from the usual Oakland hustle and bustle. 

Location History:  Established in 1922 by naturalist Henry A. Snow,  the Oakland Zoo was born on 19th St and Harrison St in downtown Oakland.   The zoo relocated several times over the years before landing in its current location, Durant Park. Over the years the zoo relocated several times: to Sequoia Park, Joaquin Miller Park and finally in 1939 to Durant Park.

During your corporate team building treasure hunt… expect to see lions and tigers and bears–literally;  a rare sun bear;  warty wart hogs;  dazzling views from atop the sky gondola, and lots, lots more. 

 

 

Dr. Clue Gives You Three Ways to Customize Your Hunt Program

Not every corporate team building program is the same.  Depending on your group, your focus may be integrating new people into the team and breaking down personal boundaries and divisions.    Or you may have an existing department where teams could, with a little practice, cooperate and communicate more smoothly across teams and divisions.  Or you might simply have a group that thrives on the use of technology.    Let Dr. Clue customize your hunt program by selecting the content focus that best matches your group and your needs.   Read more about our 3 ways to customize your teambuilding event.
