September 26, 2010 - Lily & Hope Den Work
Lily and Hope have dug out a den, but leave it and begin another. They abandon that effort when they run into many rocks. Hope digs for grubs in a log.
September 27, 2010 - Lily & Hope hanging out
Yesterday Lily and Hope worked on a den but abandoned it by the end of the day. Today they rest, play and nurse.
October 22, 2010 - Lily & Hope at Their Den
We find Lily and Hope outside a den under the roots of an overturned cedar. When the tree tipped over, the roots pulled up and created a hollow. This is a common type of den for black bears. Lily and Hope have already raked some bedding in from the surrounding area.
