Both videos are by "TaughtbyBears". "Happycub" and "Mikaloyd" sent the pictures.
All the while, supporters are moving us closer to improving the bear enclosure at the Bear Center and raising enough ($6,166 needed) to install a den cam at Lily’s den. You even surprised the staff with a beautiful Susan Laine cake delivered to the Bear Center at 1 PM.
Scott and the staff have been reaching out hourly today. He said that Donna and I can say a few words by telephone during the 10 PM broadcast.
Thank you for all you are doing
