Our chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers has begun work
on a new eco-project, 'Renewable Futures for Felines', projects
beneficial to the environment and at the same time supporting EFBC's
mission. In tandem with beautification and improvements around EFBC,
one of our projects is to incorporate small area landscaping with
drought tolerant foliage - xeriscaping. This year, we hope to break
ground in a small space in the exhibit area of center and work from
there. In order to accomplish this goal, we are asking supporters,
volunteers and staff for their best and easiest recipes to be
incorporated into a cookbook to be sold to raise funds for this and
other chapter projects, including direct support of the EFBC.
