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.

Pig Yard: then and now

May 22nd, 2014

I’ve talked about changes with the pigs’ home a couple of times during the past month. (Here and here).

Here’s what the pigs’ home used to look like:

In March, we tore down this old yard (an original from when the Farmyard was first built) and built a larger yard set back into the woods. Then in April and May, we worked on building a new barn for the pigs.

And now that it is done:

Come check the pigs out lounging or wandering in the mulch.

Pig Barn Building this week.

April 22nd, 2014

the pigs’ yard was torn down and rebuilt- it’s now newer, larger, and set back in the woods. This week they are getting a new barn. The finished product will be in the same theme as the rest of the Farmyard. Initial photos and design are below. Check out the farmyard during construction.

The pigs will be back when the work is complete.

  5. Bring them some snacks, maybe a few decorations like new hay or new enrichment items.
