Caretakers established a new feeding area for Racoons near the bluff edge to the river. A large cage is erected over a place with bare exposed rock, to scatter dry dog food and bird seed. This was done to prevent the Racoons from gathering too closely together on the porch. The cage was later expanded to a taller height to prevent deer from jumping inside.

A watering area was created near the feeding pen for Raccoons. A slow drip from a water hose keeps the water fresh.
