Event Description:   Sitting in the heart of scenic Balboa Park, is debatedly the greatest zoo in the world.   It’s certainly an amazing place, with over 3,700 animals to visit and observe.   The SD Zoo pioneered the concept of the open-air , cageless exhibits that re-create natural animal habitats.   It’s the place to go in California if you want to see a giant panda (as well as a “red” panda”), not to mention brand new baby gorillas and giraffes.   Thousands of tourists come to San Diego just to see the zoo — for good reason.

Location History:  The San Diego Zoo grew out of exotic animal exhibitions abandoned after the 1915 Panama-California Exposition.  Harry Wegeforth, founder of the Zoological Society of San Diego, was the driving force behind getting the zoo started.  From 1925 until 1953, Belle Benchley served as zoo director — for most of that time she was the only female zoo director in the world. 

During your corporate team building treasure hunt… expect to see lions and tigers and bears–literally;  a giant refrigerator(?!!);  a mammoth gorilla bust;  dazzling views from atop the skyfari 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.
