Sunday, July 29, 2018, 6:00 PM


Other fun events by our organization include Bunny Boot Camp (gateway to fostering and to volunteering),  Little Vet, and the Preschool Bunny Parade classes later this spring and summer along with camps.  ********************************************************************************************* You are invited to come stroll through our Bunny Garden... A magically wonderful place for "kids" of all ages to come experience the joy of rabbits and learning hosted by the STEM Bunnies  nonprofit educational organization.  The rabbits all come from Peacebunny Island in Minnesota USA.The intent of this activity is to advance the agricultural sciences through intracting with our staff and our rabbits...and the natural byproduct is a fun, bunny playdate with AMAZING photos!                      COME CREATE MEMORIES, TAKE PHOTOS & LEARN A TON!                                         "Science in a cute fuzzy package" www.STEMbunnies.comWe provide "hands-on, minds on" learning:Our guests learn all sorts of fun rabbit facts while visiting with a  variety of bunny breeds and ages. Because our nonprofit works to preserves endangered heritage breeds, you'll see an amazing variety of colors and varieties plus some of our purebred rescues like Little John (a tiny floppy eared buddy), Oreo (Mini Rex) who has  velvet crushed fur, our mega fluffy Angora rabbits, to our gentle giants.   We also plan to bring out some American breed baby bunnies for you to see if the weather cooperates.  What will we do at the Bunny Garden?   Guests must arrive at the start of the sesson to attend a brief safety orientation and to wash hands.  The Bunny Garden is designed as a  fun, interctive learning experience (not a mall Easter session of 5-10 minutes where sit on a lap and purchase a photo packet).   You will be engaged with our volunteers and our bunnies while you learn about different breeds and about what makes a rabbit special.  You'll have some free time to explore, spending some time touching and playing with rabbits, getting into pens with blankets on your laps and allowing the bunnies to interact with you.  Do not expect a bunny sit on your lap --- they are very active and won't likely be snuggling with anyone.    Plan to have plenty of interaction while giving our bunnies just-enough stimulation and then giving them time to rest.   Stay and play some of our bunny-related  games.   With your ticket,  you are invited to stay a whole hour in the Bunny Garden area.   No, We won't guarantee that rabbits will sit on your lap. We have created this opportunity for bunnies and our guests to come share this special time together, but not at the expense of the rabbits.  Thank you for recognizing that our bunnies are not here to be props for photos, but you will no doubt get some AMAZINGLY cute photos without staging and setting them on your child's lap.Peacebunny Cottage: our baby bunny nursery.We are in the process of developing our brand new bunny sanctuary and an actual island for the training of our therapy bunnies.  We will continue to protect endangered breeds with less than 2000 left in the world and our Angora breeds.   In order to help keep them safe, we are following good biosecurity policies.   That's why we offer activities like the "Bunny Garden" and the "Baskets of Bunnies" program that we can bring some of our rabbits to you.   Hope you'll visit us on Facebook or check out our new Youtube channel and podcasts starting this spring so you can follow some of our activities out on the island and houseboat, the "S.S. Peacebunny" Yes we have foster bunnies  -- borrow a bunnySTEM Bunnies was started because our founder Caleb Smith, who was nine years old at the time, found 362 rabbits available for sale online in the weeks after Easter just here in the Minneapolis-St Paul metro area alone.  Most of those people posting said they brought home a rabbit with good intentions, but then decided for a variety of reasons that they were simply done with their
