Spring is here!

The Grizzlies are up, the grass is growing, the temperatures rising, and everyone is enjoying the weather! Spring means a whole lot here at IEAS. The warmer temperatures mean more projects, including habitat maintenance, painting, and cementing/mortaring. One of the first things we did was some roadwork! Roy, the IEAS Maintenance Supervisor, used some heavy equipment to repair some of the bumps and holes in the Sanctuary roads that had formed in the past few chilly months. Now, we have gravel roads ready for walking and it's a good thing because spring tends to be the season of tours! Even Thor has been poking his head out on tours these past few warm weeks!

In addition to all of those we hope will come out to the Sanctuary, we plan on some community outreach! We will be doing several presentations about the Sanctuary in the DFW area, hoping to gain support for the incredible animals you all know and love. Word of mouth is the best way of increasing our support system. We love that all of our amazing fans and supporters are so helpful in spreading the word to their family and friends about the needs of the furry IEAS residents and we are so grateful when we see the positive effect it has on the Sanctuary.

This spring, take a break from your "spring cleaning" and head out to IEAS to see what we've been up to! More importantly, you'll be able to see the happy faces of animals basking in the sun and coming up to greet their friendly visitors (you)!

We hope to see you soon!
