So much help (for so much work)

We just finished up bear pool cleaning and yard work. It’s a bear of a task and takes help from so many people. Folks from six different Museum teams spent about 100 total hours taking care of tasks and the bears. The pools are now clean, yard is mowed and weed-eated; poop-scooping complete; pruning off fences; viewing camera is now functional; added traction to cliff access for bears, and probably some other items I’m too tired to remember.

The team worked well after 8 PM Sunday and started before 6 AM Monday to get the work done as quickly for the bears (and guests).

Thanks to everyone (many others besides the folks seen below)!!
