The Gardeners have been busy with some big projects. Over at the Zoo Gardeners, along with Maintenance Staff, have been working in the Birdyard to create two new spaces for the Galapagos Tortoises. Currently they are putting in a boulder fence to keep the Tortoises from getting into the other half of the Birdyard, where they could potentially harm themselves. Above are before-and-after pictures of the Birdyard with the boulder fence and without.
Located at the Como Lakeside Pavilion is the Gates Ajar which has just been planted for the year. The picture above shows the finished planting and some of the Gardeners and Interns that worked on planting the Gates Ajar.
