I'm extremely excited to be working at the Museum since October 2010. My favorite part of this job- besides working with the animals- is listening to all of the Keeper stories, I hear a new one each day. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, belly dancing, and vegan cooking.
I work Sunday through Thursday. I can be found mostly behind the scenes or training the Ring Tail Lemurs.

QuikPost: Bear Enrichment

May 10th, 2012

IĀ had to makeĀ peanut butter pinecones for the Bear’s enrichment the other day and tried something a little different. I rolled the peanut butter pinecones in shredded carrots, added just a few raisins and drizzled with a little honey. Gus Bear loved them! The grass was too high that day for me to get a good picture of him eating them though.

  1. It’s like carrot cake but with pine cones!

  2. Let me know the next time you give these to the bears. I’d love to come down and watch!

    The next time the bears are scheduled to get peanut butter pine cones is Wed the 23rd. I’m off that day but I believe Aaron will be working in ETW- give him a radio call in the a.m.

  4. Today January 15, 2011 marks 12 years since the cancellation of the spirng bear hunt in Ontario. A landmark decision regarding ethics in hunting. People who like to shoot bears still get 3 months a year to do it. Bears cannot be shot in their dens legally. A few juristictions are looking to change their laws regarding shooting bears in dens and shooting bears in spirng when cubs are very small. More should!
