Had another chance to spend the day working at the Prospect Park Zoo this week. The zoo looks beautiful and the collection animals active. I probably spent too much time watching the baby red panda Ban Li and and his mom, Willow. Go visit if you can.

Our recent visit to New Mexico included a visit to the wonderful 64 acre Albuquerque Zoo. A shout out to Karen and Keith for making our visit so very special. The zoo is beautiful and filled with a varied collection of amazing animals. They are in the midst of building a new penguin habitat that promises to be terrific. I will be back to see that when it is open next year.
 
My good friend and zoocation buddy Mary Schwalm has created another sensational 2018 Calendar. They are $10 each and are great for the office party and gift exchanges. CD sized calendar are perfect for a desk. Send an email at maryschwalm@gmail.com and get your order shipping by Monday. I have already sent her my check. (See sample below today’s photo montage).

We spent five fun-filled days with a great friend in Albuquerque NM last week. She had been inviting me for many years to come visit the Bosque del Apache refuge to see the wintering grounds of the sandhill crane, snow geese and more. We delighted at both sunset and sunrise to see the birds flock by the thousands. The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is located in southern New Mexico. It was founded in 1939 and is administered by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.  An eight mile loop allows us to view these amazing animals without disturbing them.

It has been four years since we visited the Oakland Zoo. I have always liked that zoo but now there are some even bigger improvements. They have added a whole lot of acreage and built a cable car that goes up the mountain to an event center with a delicious new cafe and extraordinary views of San Francisco. If you are in the area – go visit.

It was a beautiful day with a sensational host. EVP Paul Grayson could not have been more hospitable, entertaining and gracious when we visited the Indianapolis Zoo on our Mini-Zoocation in early May. It is a big zoo with something for everyone. Meeting walrus’, rhinos, orangutans and dolphins up-close and personal were unforgettable experiences. Seeing their scarlet macaws free fly overhead throughout the day was also amazing. Thanks to Paul and an outstanding crew for this visit.

Zoo # 2 on our New England mini-zoocation was Providence, Rhode Island’s Roger Williams Park Zoo. It has been a very long time since I had been to this zoo. It was the zoo of my RISD college days, where as young, art student, I would go to draw their amazing animals. Much has changed and it was fun to be back. They have a fabulous Jack-O-Lantern spectacular each year and we were lucky to be able to get to see it. A special shout out to PJ Jones, Animal Care Manager and Director Jeremy Goodman, DVM for taking such good care of us.rogerwilliams
