I've been at the Museum sooooo long - longer than many of our interns have been alive. I do a little bit of everything as part of my job: care for the animals, work with the keepers and other staff, spend time with guests. Lucky me!
I spend a lot of time behind-the-scenes, or here after hours, but if you really want to see me, you'll have to sign-up for a behind-the-scenes program.

Grape Bonding

July 4th, 2013

 

Last week grapes were on sale,  it’s summer, very hot, and Aaron has a credit card.

 

lots and lots and lots of grapes

Aaron bought well over 100 pounds of grapes. We freeze them and use them as frozen treats for the animals. This batch should last us over 3 months.

the keepers pulling grapes from the stems so they can be frozen individually.

It takes quite a bit of time to pull grapes off them stems. I only slightly jest that I have never seen the keepers work so well together!  What a bonus.

Kent’s head, Sarah, Kimberly, Jessi, and Jill.

I wonder how long everyone’s hands will be stained?
