Heidi’s Date at the Botanical Gardens
View this post on Instagram
We’re living in a world where “date night” means getting a weekday morning time slot to visit the @chicagobotanic Gardens. 🌱 That, or watching another in an endless parade of movies while plugging away at a craft to combat creeping anxiety (am I right?) 😅 . . Getting outdoors and getting a few miles of walking in was such a huge mental health recharge for my husband & I - who else has creative, socially distant outing ideas they can share? 👩🏼🌾 #sociallydistant #handsoccupied

UAFLARS: Univ. of Alaska Fairbanks Large Animal Research Station
“LARS is a 130 acre facility on Yankovich Road currently housing muskoxen and reindeer but is also periodically home to other large animals. We are located on a former homestead established by Mike Yankovich in 1923. Mike turned the farm over to the University in 1963 and we had our first muskoxen arrive in 1964.
Our animals are maintained for a wide variety of research and educational projects including reproduction, nutrition, energetics, and behavior. These herds are valuable for research on fundamental biological principles, biomedical sciences, validating and teaching wildlife and protocols, as well as evaluating and developing their use in Alaskan agriculture.”
One time I visited a yak ranch – some day I want to visit the LARS. 🙂
