Help Us Feed the Animals by Creating a Browse Garden and Nursery!

Animals

The Zoo is seeking funding to create a Browse Garden & Nursery on Zoo grounds to better address a need for browse plants. A location has been selected at the Zoo’s Victorian Greenhouse to establish nurseries. Cold frames, four-sided boards with clear tops used to house and protect seedlings without artificial heat, will be installed along a guest walkway and planted with several browse species our animals need. Beside that walkway, a smaller garden will be installed to grow additional browse materials such as vegetables.
