    (Based on visit last week)...

    A black bear cub is on exhibit next to wolves (this is NOT the main bear exhibit). Staff did a feeding training around 1:15pm which was very cute. (I am not sure if this is a regular time - we just happened upon it).

    A new and small bear education building is opening soon at the main bear exhibit. Building construction appeared to be complete and it looks like they just need to add the interior exhibits.

    A large education building (with new restrooms) is nearing completion behind the gift shop. Since the gift shop restrooms are out of order and guests have to use portable toilets (like at a construction site), this will be a welcome addition!

    I did NOT see the coyote pup mentioned in previous post (or any coyotes for that matter).
