September 12 Meeting

     OCTOBER 10 MEETING
ZOO HORTICULTURAL TOUR
WITH LEIGH ANN LOMAX
MANAGER, HORTICULTURE AND FACILITIES
 "Tea with Eleanor Roosevelt"
Ruth Pangrace, in the form of Eleanor Roosevelt,  joined Emerald Necklace Garden Club members at a tea party on June 13th. Pangrace is a member of “Women in History,” a group of 10 women who portray nearly 100 notable American women from the past 400 years. Members and guests learned more about Eleanor Roosevelt’s inspirational Victory Garden on the White House lawn, as well as her life during the turbulent years of the Great Depression and World War II.  
ENGC members met at the Harriett Keeler Memorial Pavilion on
September 12 for a potluck brunch and socializing.

Many documents such as histories, scrapbooks, etc. were displayed
to share during the meeting.


  What's growing on at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo? We learned how Lomax and her staff of 8 locate and collect "browse" (green) materials for the zoo animals to eat, how trees are selected and trimmed to simulate the animals' native habitats, how very specific breeding programs are managed (birth control for the female gorillas!), and a number of other features about the animals and habitats that an unguided tour of the zoo would never reveal. A gorgeous fall day and an excellent field trip!
