NEW CURBING INSTALLED IN SENSORY GARDEN
ARBORETUM PLANS UNDERWAY FOR 2018
NEW OVERHEAD DRIPLINE INSTALLED
October projects are complete and one of those was the installation of new curbing in the Sensory Garden. The curbing added aesthetic value as well as a practical application to help alleviate erosion problems. The curbing was designed to match the existing profile. Stop out and see the changes !
A tree identifying "party" was completed on October 15. This was the first step in getting the Zoo and gardens accredited for official Arboretum status. The trees located along the main trails and Plaza were identified first and then followed with the gardens. Special thanks to all those volunteers that helped.
On October 13th society volunteers installed a new overhead drip system at the Zoo. The dripline will ease the watering of the flower pots located at the door entrances of the Zoo Visitor Center. There are plans to install a self-timer as well. Spring 2018 the system will be fired up and some training will be planned.
Here's the latest photos of the greenhouse improvement project. We will also be replacing fascia board and installing an air vent. If you get a chance take a look at the dragonflies on the roof. They are solar-powered and light up at night !
