Lily, Ursula, Volunteers - UPDATE August 11, 2017

Lily and her three cubs put in an appearance to the neighborhood’s delight.  Also, Ursula and her four cubs brought joy to all who saw her.  Same with Braveheart and her 3 cubs.  Lily and cubsLily and cubsThe landowner sent these pictures of Lily plus the wolf picture.  We haven’t heard of the lame wolf lately, and I don’t know if this photo is him healed up or a different one.  In this nature-loving community, nature includes bears and wolves for most of the residents.

Donna at critter timeDonna at critter timeAt the Bear Center, the first group of 6 interns has gone back to school and we miss them.  Two new interns and two Bear Educator volunteers are trying to take on their duties with the help of Judy Thon, Sharon Herrell, and Donna Rogers.  The transition means that Judy, Sharon, and Donna have extra work training and participating, so they were unable to send news about the ambassador bears.

WolfWolfWe are very thankful for volunteers and interns.  It seems we can always use more.  I’m not sure when the next training class is.

Thank you for all you do.
