Our animals are the stars of the Earthfire show. Enjoy photos and videos of our dear friends, big and small, as they amuse, teach and offer us the possibility for deeper connections.
We are located in eastern Idaho near the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Parks. The stunning natural beauty we are surrounded by is a vital part of the Earthfire Experience.
Everyone who visits Earthfire is as precious to us as our animal friends, and each person leaves profoundly affected by their experience.
- VIDEO: Humble Bumbles Canine Mentor
He was found at a roadside zoo that was closing down, just a few weeks old. It was clear even then that he was a differently-abled bear. As we watched him play, sweetly, innocently, not too coordinated, not too quick on the draw, the name just came out – Humble Bumble. Life scares him. Anything new scares him. Without encouragement he would rock himself endlessly in a corner. But he trusts his mentor Boychuk the German Shepherd. It was Boychuk who gave him the courage to go to the Wildlife Garden and play. To see the care and affection with which he plays with Boychuk, holding back his strength, adds a new dimension to one’s perception of grizzly bears. Humble Bumble, is a bear of character.
- Self Healing with Wolves
