I am most famous here in the animal department for "expanding" the barred owl exhibit, clogging the wolf pool, and splitting my pants. My other less notorious work, since 2003, includes keeping, purchasing our animal supplies, coordinating our volunteers, and managing our animal enrichment program.
Find me training the lemurs or in other various animal enclosures Monday through Friday, or at the grocery store on Wednesdays, when I shop for produce!

New Year’s Resolutions 2013

January 2nd, 2013

Hey there!  It’s former Animal Keeper Kristen, back on the blog to talk New Year’s Resolutions.  Well, I actually haven’t made time yet to reflect on the past year and set some goals for 2013  ( I’ve looked to the museum animals for inspiration in years past: 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012), so I suppose I’ll be working on that the next few days.  But I thought I’d throw out a little challenge for you– and for me.  I visit the museum at least weekly with my 20 month old,  and so I’d like you to leave a comment with one of your resolutions for the upcoming year, and over the next few weeks (months?) I’ll attempt to capture a photo of one of the museum animals “illustrating” that resolution!  Could be challenging, and I may need to enlist some Keeper help!

Oh, I do know one goal I’d like to meet in the New Year:  learn how to knit.  It’s something that’s been on my list for a few years– in fact, I always meant to get former keeper Cassidy to give me a lesson before she moved away, but never got around to it.   I think it’d be fun to make Libby a little toddler sweater.

perhaps a sweater made from alpaca wool??

Anyway, hope you all have a Happy New Year, and I’m looking forward to hear your aspirations for 2013!

  1. Eat more chocolate! (Probably bad for wolves, but is there for any animal (besides people) any benefits to chocolate consumption?

  3. Renewing my museum membership which is a couple months overdue. (The sheep would have said I’m so baaad!)
    Then I plan on getting exercise while looking at the animal exhibits. sailboats, etc etc. Read that the museum animals have also gotten exercise on Loblolly Trail.
