Book Club Featured
Who doesnt love a good book? Starting in May, we will be meeting every other month to chat and socialize with other members of our Zoo community.
The pick for our first meeting is Red Tails in Love: A Wildlife Drama in Central Park by Marie Winn. This is a gripping read that takes place in a different Olmstead firm designed park, but shows the large amount of wildlife in event the most urban of areas. Just a suggestion, you can get the book used for .01 plus shpping online which is a great form of reusing!
Our first meeting will be Sunday, May 15th at 2pm in our cafe' area. Coffee will be provided but feel free to bring your own snacks or plan on grabbing a bite from our new and improved cafe offerings. There is no charge for this program.
