Grizzly Ranch and Florida Black Bear Rescue was very dear to Moms heart. This is a non profit organization that was founded by Dexter and Megan Osborn, Janet’s granddaughter. They are close to opening to the public in the spring. Their long term plan is to have a camp for children who were burned and also help troubled teens by teaching them about the animals, what to feed the animals and help build habitats.
