A Recap of 2014 - UPDATE December 31, 2014

Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!

While we wish a Happy New Year to Lily Fans and bears everywhere, we remember the joys of 2014.

Holly has been a joy all year as she settled in to life at the Bear Center and developed relationships with the bears and staff.

After an unavoidable delay, we got in gear working toward the Northwoods Ecology Hall opening in May 2015. Along that line, just today, we received drafts of the many species accounts that so many dedicated Lily Fans have been working on this past year. They are part of the nearly 200 volunteers worldwide working towards our educational mission

Judy Thon and the staff started the world wide podcasts in May that enhanced visitors? experiences at the Bear Center as well as providing education via the pond cam worldwide. Scott Edgett joined the Bear Center at the end of July and is showing great vision moving us forward.

To move forward in other ways, we are cataloguing videos to document bear behavior for publications, to freshen exhibits at the Bear Center, and to make them available to future researchers.

To help the Northwoods Ecology Hall and Hope Learning Center come to fruition, Lily Fans donated for taxidermy for my birthday in April and helped more as part of the LilyPad picnic, the Hinckley Gathering this fall and the GiveMN event just a month ago in November.

We couldn't do what we do without you.

Thank you for all you do.

Lynn Rogers, Biologist, Wildlife Research Institute and North American Bear Center
