Smiling Bears: a fun and interesting evening event

My friend Lisa Stewart at the Appalachian Bear Rescue sent me this photo of one of the cubs she is rehabbing now. It’s pretty cute so I had to share it with you (even Larry would have to say it was cute).

If you love bears you are not going to want to miss our evening event
Thursday June 25 at 7:00. Bear behaviorist and former animal keeper Else Poulsen will be here to share stories of her work with bears: polar bears and grizzly bears and black bears. She worked with these animals for years at the Calgary and Detroit Zoos.

She recently published a book called Smiling Bears: A Zookeeper Explores the Behavior and Emotional Life of Bears. You will have the opportunity to ask her questions about her work and to purchase a signed copy of her book. After the presentation, you’ll be able to take an evening stroll down to our bear exhibit, learn and ask questions about the Museum’s black bears, and help give the bears their dinner.

There are still some spaces left and you must register in advance. Click here to learn a little about the event, or just call extension 313 at the Museum (919-220-5429) to register.

I hope you can join me for this unique opportunity.
