Assiniboine Park Zoo Visit

I am at the Assiniboine Park Zoo a lot since I have been volunteering there for the last year and a half, but my picture taking while volunteering is limited to my cell phone.  Yesterday I had some time to go there – not as a volunteer, but as a member with my camera.  It… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo Visit

English Garden at Assiniboine Park

I am often in the Assiniboine Park because I volunteer at the zoo, but I seldom go into the English Garden, which is right beside the zoo.  Yesterday, I was early for my shift and decided to spend the extra time in the garden. I only had my phone with me, so the pictures are… Continue reading English Garden at Assiniboine Park

I bundled up and headed… Continue reading Chilly Day at the Zoo

I am currently house and dog sitting my buddy Toby, who belongs to… Continue reading Catching Up

Three Hours at the Zoo

Of course, I am referring to the Assiniboine Park Zoo here in Winnipeg, where I volunteer for a three hour shift once or twice a week.  During that time we move to different locations so that each shift is spent in 3 different areas.  This way we see most of the zoo in the time… Continue reading Three Hours at the Zoo
