Find the Baby Bison Display at the ROM

Kids loved the mystery of the lost baby bison.

They searched the 285 hectares of the Toronto Zoo. They inspected the great halls, galleries and dark corners of the Royal Ontario Museum. They probed the online world of Bison Collaborative websites. They left no stone unturned. They were dedicated, passionate about the mystery of the lost baby bison.

The Bee Contest Winner Visits the ROM!

Posted: October 15, 2011 - 14:30 , by Sarah Elliott

I love sharing the cool secrets of the ROM with visitors, so it really made my day when our Name the Queen Bee Contest winner Kaitlyn visited the ROM with her mom and her brother Kynan (who also happened to be our third place winner). I got to show them around the Keenan Family Gallery of Hands-on Biodiversity and Life in Crisis: Schad Gallery of Biodiversity, as well as introduce them to a few special friends of mine who live behind-the-scenes at the ROM.

On June 11 and 12, the Keenan Family Gallery of Hands-on Biodiversity hosted our Bee Appreciation Day. Visitors from far and wide swarmed to the gallery’s beehive to get the buzz on the new bee colony from our very own Queen Bee, Janine, the gallery’s beekeeper (and I promise I will stop making bee puns now).
