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

Blustery Day

I was scheduled for a volunteer shift at the Assiniboine Park Zoo this morning and a little bit of wind and snow wasn’t going to stop me.  🙂 It turned out to be one of those days when there were more volunteers than visitors.

I got pictures… Continue reading Polar Bears

A Different View of the Zoo

Today I decided to concentrate more on the buildings and the spaces at the Assiniboine Park Zoo instead of the critters.  Of course, some critters still managed to get into a few photos, but I got many photos without critters too.  🙂 We will start with the entrance.  If you click on the pictures, you… Continue reading A Different View of the Zoo
