Move over March Madness- it's October and it is time to fill out your brackets for the annual Fat Bear Week competition! Each year the brown bears of the Brooks River at Katmai National Park in Alaska spend the summer and fall getting bulked up to survive the brutal winter they must go through in the months ahead. In the world of bears, being chunky is definitely a goal! Started in 2014, this event celebrates the bears and also highlights the important connections between all of the animals, like the brown bears and salmon, in the Brooks River ecosystem.

You can watch live bear cams (be careful- watching is addictive! :), learn about individual bears, get info about Katmai NP, and even vote for the Fat Bear Week champion 2022 from October 5-11! To learn more about Fat Bear Week, get your Fat Bear Week championship bracket started, and join in this fun and educational virtual event, visit www.fatbearweek.org ! Have fun!

What're ewe looking at??

Our two rams at Sheep Pasture are both Jacob sheep, a breed known for their piebald, patchy wool and their large horns.

Affectionately nicknamed Fourhorn and Bighorn, our rams show the two variations of horns found in Jacob sheep. Bighorn has two large, curled horns on the side of his head, while Fourhorn has two vertical horns that go straight up, and two smaller horns that frame his face.

The Sheep Pasture trails and property will be open on Labor Day weekend for anyone who wants to take some time to unwind with nature as the summer slows down and the fall heats up. Pack a picnic, take a hike on the trails, or just sit and enjoy some down time outdoors for a while. Leashed pets are welcome at Sheep Pasture, too. Don't forget to bring enough snacks and water for the people and pets in your group!
