Remember that you can purchase my new book dedicated to the Kodiak Bears and (their adventures climbing tree’s ) on Dec. 16th, at the Marshfield Mercantile located at 355 S. Central Ave. Marshfield, WI. More details will be announced in the near future!

Watching Boda try to reach for a little dangling  tree branch, makes me wonder if he’ll  take to the tree tops again in March of 2018.  Many of the bears favorite climbing trees were cut down in late October and early November.  So the Bear Woods Habitat area has many enrichment options for Munsey and Boda to explore this winter.

I’ve created dance themed artwork to honor my families love of dance! My  father is a graduate from Arthur Murray School for Ballroom  Dance in Chicago. So my parents were avid Ballroom Dancers. My daughter Katherine is a former student of Main Street Conservatory of Dance. She is also a former Dance Choreographer for the Wisconsin State 4-H Showcase Singers.  So the art of dancing has always been in my blood!

I began documenting the Kodiak bear cubs through photography in October of 2015 at the Grand Opening of the JP Adler Kodiak Bear Exhibit.  Since October 2015, I’ve taken thousands of photographs and have begun charting the growth and development of the bears using a graphing format.  This information along with the photographs is used when I’m writing my blog and books and is also shared with the zoo staff at Wildwood Zoo.
